Ok.  Fair enough.  I'm mostly curious (at this point) to see if your implementation of multipart/form-data is able to properly
receive the test (that doesn't make use of multipart/mixed) from the validator.  At which point (or perhaps even before) I can
change the test page to reflect the use of the non-mixed syntax.
