Just as a point of note ... text parts that are based-64 encoded are
supposed to have CR+LF line endings.  Before we got that wrong, but the
latest release of nmh should get that right (we'll write out those with
Unix line endings when storing them, and add a CR during encoding).
Technically a base64-encoded text part with Unix line endings is wrong
according to the standard.
