[Nmh-workers] MIME questions, and followup to my earlier email

I'm starting to look at writing new code to handle reading MIME messages
as per the earlier discussion.  My plan is to write a completely new
version of scan for people to play with, and to replace the original only
when consensus is reached on behavior.

I haven't paid attention to mail standards in a long time.  Is RFC 2231
a happening thing?  Do we need to go through the trouble of supporting it?

On my earlier email, I guess that I'm unhappy that meillo is making changes
that break things, even if those are minor things.  Comments on my proposed
MIME-reading changes indicated that they should be optional for compatibility
reasons.  I took that approach when I implemented the MIME-sending changes.
I think that we should only break existing code for clear and compelling
technical reasons.
