I don't see why that needs to be configurable instead of hard coded.

Looks good for the most part. MH commands tend to use a space instead of
=. I wouldn't include mode given that x-unix-mode is non-standard. Could
always use long options (e.g. --x-unix-mode) similar to pick's syntax
for additional components.

Could also allow something like -autodescription to specify a command to
generate the description automatically. So running file to get a
description would be something you need to configure. For the mime type
it would allow you to use a script that uses .mailcap files.

The filename ought to go in Content-Disposition really. Can always copy
that from the file="" component. We may need some syntax for specifying
the main value for Content-Disposition, though.
