A data stream that would allow you to be able to write to a file attachment in a rich text field.

Sounds a bit like a dream to me. Anyway, if I could have it, I'd surely want it.

I'm demoting this because it's not important to me. It's an okay idea, but not anything that I see a real use for. Saving the attachment, editing it on disk, then reattaching it isn't a big deal to me.

@2 - The benefit to me over the years would be huge. In strictly controlled environments, Notes Admins often (rightly) massively restrict rights of agents to access the disk, so you have to go through a whole approval process just to run an agent with rights to save the attachment to disk and then re-attach it to the document. If you could stream the attachment directly into a document it would have saved me literally days of bureaucracy.

@3 Exactly. And more importantly to me, my auditors would consider this a more secure solution, just because it doesn't use the file system.
