I think that supporting only Gnus is too specific. Not all the people
use Gnus as mail reader. And the extra menu option you propose will only
eat up space for people not using Gnus.

I'd prefer a more generic approach working in any kind of email reader,
be it rmail, gnus, mu4e, notmuch, or wunderlust. The approach can
probably making use of message-mode or MML libraries from Emacs core.

Also, I do not like adding yet another menu option even if it is working
for other mail readers. Instead, it would be more consistent to follow
what we do for dired. See interactive spec in org-attach-attach.
