Allow User to Browse for File on Local File System with name greater than 64 characters

The AddAttachment function limits the user to files with names no longer than 64 characters long. I have a user thatinsists they must use longer file names when uploading the file into our system. Unfortunately, there is no way to reconfigure the AddAttachment parameters to allow for a longer file name. How can I just display the same windows open file dialog pop-up dialog (as is displayed using AddAttachment) and then manipulate the file behind the scenes? Or can I trick the AddAttachment to return the file name even if it is too long?
