That was probably my fault, but it would be helpful to figure out
exactly how it broke.  It begs a larger meta-question: should we allow
a handler for multiparts?  Those are sort of special and are normally
handled internally.

It would be helpful if regular users of PGP could let us know what
kind of messages they get, and they want to send.  A single text/plain
with just ASCII-armoured PGP data?  The old application/pgp MIME
type?  Or the more standards-based multipart/encrypted with the
application/pgp-encrypted type?
