I was looking for sample code for this kind of thing too, and also
coming up short. Take a look at this plugin:
It seems to be doing an OK job of getting at some of the
attachment info without using the new hooks - just by querying.
It's pretty simple and you might be able to modify it to do
what you need, or use it as an example (though it would be nicer
to use the API of course).
