Right, exactly.
- the individual on Slashdot said he was told directly (by email) from
the person triaging the report that this was not possible 
- which is the part I don't quite accept, more likely a little
miscommunication. [my supposition would be something like: he was told
that making an attachment to an issue will always be public and took
that to me it is not at all possible]

Alright well, I'll go back to slashdot and post a clarification after
todays MC call.
