Ah but we do have two automatic solutions in place already: spambots 
won't easily register anymore, and html attachments will download
as plain text. That conor2k could upload an attachment was only possible
because he got his account before the spam protection got in place,
and because the account wasn't expired afterwards.

If we can't have file attachments, then we will have to stick with
the SF bugtracker forever.
