Probably need to be a bit more ambitious than that, and MIME-compliant.

What I have in my own scan file:

%<(match text/plain) \
%?(match text/html)H\
%?(match multipart/signed)S\
%?(match multipart/encrypted)E\
%|%<{content-type}M%|?%>%> \

although now that the vast majority of stuff is multipart/alternative with
a text/plain and text/html, retiring the M may make sense.  I'm amazed at
how often I still see an 'H' or a '?' though. :)
