In this same thread of thought, I'm also looking to move the 
delete_attachment action hook before the actual deletion in 
wp_delete_attachment.  I create 2 thumbnails and I can't delete the 2nd 
one because I have no way of accessing the attachment's meta data.  Or a 
"pre_delete_attachment" hook would be fine, too.  I'm wondering how many 
other functions present a similar plugin capability issue?

I'll submit a patch for my issue, but have we decided on the accepted 
route?  Do I move the delete_attachment action or add a new action for 
pre_delete_attachment?  IMHO, having delete_attachment after the delete 
code really serves no purpose.  How do I grep the Plugin Repository to 
see if it's being used?  Thanks!
