Well, if just changing the setting moved a big ton of files, I'd
consider that problematic too.

Basically, it's a problem without a particularly good solution... I've
thought of a couple of ways (like sticking an attachment shortcode
into the post instead of an IMG link), but they all have drawbacks.

Deprecated, but it's been there a long time and I haven't seen anybody
lobbying to remove it.
