[wp-hackers] Getting context inside the add_attachment hook

I've managed to work around it in a dirty way, passing a fake post_id to
media-upload.php, which in turn gets passed to async_upload.php and can
then be retrieved from the add_attachment hook.

If anyone knows of a cleaner way to do this, please share.
