Why second parameter of media_handle_upload( $file_id, $post_id ) is required?

It's better to define it as 0 and make it optional. In some cases it's more convenient! And we lose nothing if do so...

Hi @Tkama,

I don't know that there's any real benefit to making this change. Future function calls would no longer require the parameter, but requiring the parameter also requires the developer to make a conscious decision about where the image should be attached, if at all.

Marking as a close candidate, but also for a 2nd-opinion.
