Interesting. When I read this the first time, I only considered the
approach of first opening an email interface (for instance, Gmail in
Browse) and then selecting a file from the Journal to attach to it. I
hadn't considered wanting to send the document I'm *currently working
on* to someone else as an attachment.
One reason for this might be due to the fact that we *do* plan to add
a "send to..." option to the palette/toolbar for each activity, to
allow direct file transfers between people running Sugar. Perhaps
there is a place in here somewhere for "mail to..." as well? Or,
perhaps under send to it's possible to select an individual, or a
group, or an *activity* (!) which could then take some action based
upon what it was given. By selecting an email activity, it could
generate a new draft message and automatically attach the file.
