I was a little shocked to find that no one seems to have yet written
a general-purpose MIME parsing library in C. Having one would
probably encourage more MIME awareness in other tools.
In the absence of anything else, I wrote a program to parse enough
MIME to extract the text/plain portion from multipart/mixed bodies,
but it would definitely be useful to expand this to an all-singing-
all-dancing MIME manipulation tool. I just can't figure out what
the API should look like. (Maybe that's why no one else has done it.)
