Actually, I've got the boundary string as well, since it's part of the
Content-Type header.  In my (brief) tests, my Perl script handles multiparts
(including nested multiparts) just fine.

Yeah, I decided to punt for all message/* types.  I couldn't ever remember
a time when I needed to have the content of a message/* part in a reply.
In theory the code wouldn't be so bad since Mailtools has all of the
pieces in it to parse a rfc822 header, but I decided to let people see
what I have now.
