Choose between external sources and keep filename for module attachment

Hi, really like the attachment module:

block/multimedia/attachment

Got some suggestions for improvement, It would be great if the module also could let you link to an external file stored anywhere like "http://fildestinationtoexternalfilhisting.doc", instead of just upload to the platform.

For present functionality of the module, It would also be great to keep the files original filenames. I understand that when using a CDN the filename change, but if its possible It would be much nicer to the learner (if the learner for instance will download the file) to keep the origial file name.

Thanks!
