 The enclosed patch supports file attachment importing with wxr files.

 If the 'Import attachments' box is checked on step 2 of the import (the
 Assign Authors page), the importer will attempt to download attachments
 from their original URLs to the uploads dir of the local server.  I've
 used the existing upload handling functions as much as possible, with a
 few tweaks here and there, so correct error handling and capability checks
 should be enforced.

 HTTP fetching is with an expanded version of the wp_get_http_headers()
 function.  I also took the opportunity to remove some duplicate code in

 For now the new import code is in WP_Import, but my plan is to eventually
 move much of it into a base class so it can be reused by the other
