Vacuum attachment for drapery sucks...but in a good way

Vacuum attachment for drapery sucks...but in a good way

We're in the middle of testing the newest yet-to-be-released Halo Ultraviolet Vacuum Cleaner right now (as if the Halo brand didn't need more press already), pitting the model against our recently purchased Hoover Constellation Floating Vacuum in a battery of household chores. In both cases, an attachment we'd like to see is one for drapery, like this one from Home Trends.

The roller shape prevents fabric from being sucked into the vacuum, supposedly trapping "99% of trapped dirt, dust & allergens from drapes, slipcovers, bedspreads, bedding and fringed rugs". Because in the case of fabrics and other things, sucking too hard can cause damage.
