All this looks very encouraging!

When you use `gnorb-org-handle-mail' on a heading, that composes a new
reply to most recently-associated message (or does something else,
depending), and runs `map-y-or-n-p' over the org-attach files, offering
to attach them to the outgoing message.

This works pretty well for me. The only org-attach commands I'm really
missing now would be `org-attach-copy-attachment' (to somewhere else on
my filesystem), and `org-attach-refile-attachment' (to move an
attachment to a different heading).

Anyway, all looks promising! Now to find the time...
