paperclipped comes with a fine installation routine that even imports
your old attachments (and images) and moves them to it's default
location. Look at the github page, there should be a rake task for
mirgration form page_attachments. At least that's how i remember it -

And paperclipped does use a central media pool BUT you still are able
to attach items to pages, so you can, as you woudl do with
page_attachments before, access attachments on pages and get only the
ones attached to this page (but you also cold use som arbitratry ones
by direktly including them)
The radiant tags are a bit different, but cycling throuhg attachments
and testing for them (with mime type filters) is an easy task.
So the attachments thing is still in there. The bucket is for
attaching items to different pages. You add them to the bucket "to
carry them around", and then you can attach items form the bucket to
pages you're editing.
So all in all (and that's the reason i switched) paperclipped is more
flexible and offers a superset of functionality over page_attachments.
That's a very convincing case - I'm going to try PaperClipped. For one
of my sites, I'll leave it at PageAttachments for the time being, but
for the one I'm working on, I'm going to try Paperclipped.
