[hypermail] Suggestion: Retain attachment filenames when possible

When an HTML document is sent to list that is maintained by hypermail, the image links are broken in the archives, even if the images are also included as message attachments. For example, see: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2002Nov/0083.html This occurs because hypermail adds a numeric prefix "01-" to each attachment filename. I assume this is done in order to insure that the filenames are unique (in case the same file was attached more than once).

It would be REALLY nice if the numeric prefix were added ONLY if the attachment names were non-unique. This would make it possible to send an HTML document and its images as message attachments and have them show up properly in the archives.
