Following changes to lib/TWiki/attach.pm allows time/date processing:

Add after
use strict; 
use Assert; 
use TWiki::Time; 

and add before

    # ensure that filename is URL encoded - first $name must be URL.
    $fileLink =~ s/\$name/$fileURL/;
    $fileLink =~ s/\$name/$attName/;
    my $fileext = $attName;
    $fileext =~ s/(.*\.)*([^.]*)/$2/;
    $fileLink =~ s/\$fileext/$fileext/;

    if (defined $att->{date})
      my $date = $att->{date};
      use Time::localtime;
      my ($seconds,$minutes,$hours,$day,$mo,$ye,$wday,$ydat,$isdst) = gmtime($date);
      #require TWiki::time;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$date/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0)/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$seconds/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$seconds")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$minutes/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$minutes")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$hours/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$hours")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$wday/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$wday")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$day/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$day")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$month/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$month")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$mo/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$mo")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$year/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$year")/gei;
      $fileLink =~ s/\$ye/TWiki::Time::formatTime( $date || 0, "\$ye")/gei;

After this change, following attachment example is possible:
On TWIki Site:
   * Local ATTACHEDFILELINKFORMAT = |$year-$mo-$day|Effort        |[[%ATTACHURL%/$name][%ICON{$fileext}% $name]]| received from company xy |

Simple enhancement with nice effects, good enough to add to the next twiki version?
