Dear Derek,

you did notice that the message you're answering to is from 2008 (2008-08-28 
to be precise), didn't you? I don't think there is anyone offering a bounty on 
this feature at this point in time, though I might be wrong.

As for the "attachment to transactions feature", I can see the following 
existing discussion:

and especially

Currently nobody is working on this feature. Feel free to give it a try.

What do you mean by "has a budget"?

As for the effort estimation: There might be some solution available which 
doesn't require too much effort, i.e. on the order of 1-2 weeks plus getting 
to know the code. But the actual implementation (i.e. where to put the 
attached files etc.) is still open for discussion and prototyping. I'd love to 
see a very first implementation of this feature which may very well have 
severe restrictions on the attached files, but it should be at least something 
to get this started.
