As I've been looking at this, one thing jumped out at me (probably out 
of ignorance on my part). The first is why are attachments referenced 
with attachment_id= instead of p=? The post_type is easily identified in 
the query so a special query string doesn't seem to be needed.

Regardless, how practical would it be to add some sort of registration 
function that plugins could use for adding additional post types?
