[pmwiki-users] Listing of unresolved attachments in AttachTable recipe?

We are using AttachTable with our PmWiki installation with great  
success. The ability to restore previous versions of deleted files has  
been a lifesaver!

Is there any way to enable the display of "unresolved" attachments in  
Attachtable? I often write large sections of Wiki text with many  
attachments, and it is somewhat tedious to scroll down through the  
text to the first red link, click it, locate the file to upload, click  
"Upload", and then return to the "View" tab, scroll down to the next  
red link, click it, locate the file, ...

This activity could be avoided if the Attachtable included a list of  
all Attach: directives that did not yet have files associated with  
them, and allowed direct uploads from the Attach screen. I envision  
them presented as red links with the paperclip icon to maintain the  
paradigm used in page display. After uploading the file, the page  
would display the updated Attachtable list, allowing the user to  
continue making further upload/delete/rename operations.

I'd be happy to help design and test this change, but I'm not familiar  
enough with PmWiki internals to undertake it myself.

Thanks in advance,
