Yes, that is one way.  There is also something to be said for trying
to improve on the way other programs do things.  Not that The Bat's handling of
attachments is an improvement.  Sometimes, one person's improvement is
another person's unnecessary complication.  That would be the person
who doesn't want to learn a new way.  Rather than resist change, I
think people sometimes simply don't want to be bothered with new
learning.  They are busy enough.  It gets difficult for developers who
want to attract new users with new ideas.  Of course, new users
aren't resistant since they don't have a previous way of doing
things that seems good enough.
