You can upload multiple attachments. As to attachment passwords, use permissions.

What he means is uploading multiple files at once without having to select each file in turn and without using a format like zip, which I think would be quite useful.

Something like http://digitarald.de/project/fancyupload/

A use case would be uploading 15 photos to a post.

I think it would be useful to have an option to download all attachments in a topic and an option to download all attachments in a post as well as a zip or another format.

Can you provide some use cases for this feature?

Yes, uploading multiple files without having to reload the page (using AJAX or even just plain JS to add a new file input field) would greatly improve the user experience. For example when uploading a ton of photos.

Further more that little page refresh is confusing for some users.
To me it just a bit annoying, but I agree with you.

I would love to upload multiple files simultaneously.
I don't care about whether AJAX or not, but would like to specify multiple files, then click "upload" and have them all sent.

I should not require Flash, though.

Example implementations with code using jQuery
written as tutorial
fyneworks plugin
