Add option to delete attached gallery/images when post/page is deleted

    Whenever I expire a post or page and delete it from the trash, it leaves all of the attached images in the media library. I average about 30-50 photos per post/page, so I then have to go through every few months and manually find the old photos that are no longer attached to posts or pages so I can individually delete them....which is not easy, because media library does not do sorting very well and you can also only delete the currently viewable 20-30 images at a time when doing bulk deletes.

    WP does not do this by default since there is no guarantee that attachment isn't still being used by some other post.

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/delpost/ can do this.
