Thanks.  Do you see any problems with this?

gnus-dired.el has a function `gnus-dired-attach' that is Gnus-specific.
So I think it would be better to leave gnus-dired.el alone, and implement
new commands in dired.el or dired-aux.el (and maybe take into account
the command guessing behaviour of ! in dired-x.el).
