How about a "replace" link next to each of the files in the (:attachlist:),
when activated it reloads the page with the name field already filled in?
That way someone could simply click on the file they want to replace?

It's tough to make name+filename into combo boxes, because combo boxes
in browsers don't allow a person to enter in a custom value -- you're 
limited to the values in the combo box.  And I've always felt that
using two boxes (one combo box, one text field) for entering a single
value was not a good interface design.
