Separating file_column upload directory by account

I’m working on an app right now that uses
http://www.kanthak.net/opensource/file_column/index.html Sebastian
Kanthak’s
file_column plugin for file uploads. The usual directory structure it
saves
to is:

model/attr/id/filename

For my current project, I’d like to separate uploads by account so that
it’s
easier to monitor an account’s resource usage. So, the directory
structure
would be:

@account_name/model/attr/id/filename

(@account_name is the name of the specific account.)

Ultimately, there would be one of these for each account:

account_1/model/attr/id/filename
account_2//model/attr/id/filename
account_3/model/attr/id/filename
etc.

I see where these paths are built in the plugin (line 20 of
file_column.rb
it looks like), but I can’t figure out how to the account information in
there. I have an instance variable (@account) generated in my
controller
that holds all the current account information. How do I get that
object
from my controller over to file_column which is working with classes
that
are subclasses of ActiveRecord::Base?

Thanks in advance, PJ
