First of all this is a great request.  Thanks for sharing.  Yes, I
think this is a needed feature.  No I don't think we can get it in
when 1.3 ships.  However, see below.  Things are not without hope.

I think this a much needed feature, one we have gone around the list
about in the past.

If you are interested in funding the work, I will send you a proposal.
 It would probably at this point be an add-on, namely an officially
supported patch and extension (already we have the same for template
transactions and fixed asset handling/depreciation).  I don't think it
would be a huge amount of work but I'd have to think this through a
bit.  The largest issue would probably be for displaying the file
attached to a payment.
