I keep all of my digital photos in Zope (no Plone).

For document management and Perl, take a look at TWiki. It's GPL not PAL, but 
it uses the filesystem as its "database". The TagMePlugin plays nice with 
several others... although I forked its code because a) I found a bug and b) 
I didn't like the direction they were going with search.

In particular for your application you would be able to create a form-driven 
interface to create the pages with the attached items within TWiki's 
framework. Or, you could just hack it at the filesystem level. It uses RCS 
for revision control, but it doesn't require that the ,v file exist... you 
can just create the pages and attachments and those artifacts will be created 
for you automagically if needed... if you have the Perl chops to write the 
wiki pages and attachments to the correct places to begin with.
