 I have added an option called filename_base which sets the main string to be used in attachment names. The extension will be added to the end if one is found (i.e. attachment.###).
 I haven't tried to make the attachment number show up in the name that the user normally sees, but for attachments other than the first, the attachment number is inserted at the beginning of the actual filename and url. This attachment number has always been getting inserted like that, so there was never any significant risk of filename clashes.
