I kinda feel that the MIME standard is pretty good and generally
supercedes all the other fiddly protocols wherever possible.
The only case where you don't use MIME is just plain text emails,
and let's face it, they don't need wanky signatures tacked on the
end, now do they?
(actually, most MIME separators seem to start with --, hmmm)
