this feature is already supported by the PDF 1.4 Specification. I think
there was a FILE type object (or something like that) when I looked at it
last time, so it should be doable with \pdfobject directly. I.e. you can
"attach" a file to the PDF document (and that is probably how it is
presented in Adobe GUI --- "attach" function)
