[O] [RFC] [patch] open/delete attachment with inherited directory

I have some org files where each headline corresponds to an entry in a
bibliography.  The headlines each have attached to them a pdf file of
the corresponding document.  The attachment directory is set as a
file-level property and inherited by the children (this is so that I can
access the files easily also outside of org).

In the current implementation of org-attach-{open,delete-one}, I am
prompted to choose among all files in the attachment directory (i.e. all
the pdfs of entries in the bibliography), not just the (usually single)
file attached to the headline at point.  I think the latter behavior
makes more sense.  The attached (heh) patch implements this change.  Are
there any comments?

* lisp/org-attach.el (org-attach-open): Only get the files pertaining
to the present headline

This change is useful in cases where the attachment directory is
inherited – in such cases, the we don’t want to see all the files in
the directory, but rather only those associated to the present
