I've been thinking about this a little further. If I remember correctly,
part of the reason the original MIME building was designed the way
it was is so the user can inspect the draft after it has been MIMEfied.
This is part of the "all power to the user" idea.

Ideally, the new attach mechanism should probably be made to fit into
this scheme, though I don't know how much work that will be. I know it
would mean the attachment processing shouldn't be done by send (or post),
and I'm sure you had your reasons for doing it that way.
