Thanks!  That really helps!

It could be displayed just like a regular directory being shown in
org-fstree.  I like to store documents related to projects in my
attachment directory, and sometimes want to seem them.  If I just open
the directory with ^A-^A-F to view it in dired mode, and an attachment
is a PDF, clicking on it opens the PDF file in emacs.  Not the same as
opening a link to the PDF, which is what org-fstree gives me.  So I
have been using org-fstree, and pointing it to the attachment
directory, and getting much nicer results -- other than having to
figure out a path to the attachment directory.  Would be nice if
org-fstree did that for me.

I have "att:" as  a link prefix to my attachment directory; if
org-fstree could expand link prefixes, that would be a nice general
solution (but what to do if the expansion isn't a local directory?).

Just an idea...  Thanks for this extension.
