[pmwiki-users] Attachtable, now with meta silliness

I guess this could be seen as creeping featuritis, but Attachtable
<http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/Attachtable> can now read meta
information from attached media files, all the way from useful stuff
like the pixel size of an image or the ID3 tags of an MP3 file to the
program used to encode a movie file. Integration with RecentUploadsLog
is also supported, so you can read the update history of a file.

Oh, and there's a new action=thumbnail for extracting an embedded
thumbnail from JPEG files as well other ways to find a thumbnail for
an image.

Due to pmwiki.org's 150k limit on archives I had to split the recipe
into two files. Alternatively, it's available as a complete package
from <http://autsys.tkk.fi/pub/pmwiki/attachtable-2009-04-27.zip>. The
size is due to the included GetID3() library, which contains a number
of modules for various media types. Not to fear, only the relevant
modules are actually included when the code is run.
