  It was perfectly clear to me what you're alluding to by that sentence.
See below.

 I knew he had done that, but he tried RFC 2231 first _before_ falling
back to RFC 2047. Besides, he didn't make any comment on the awakardness
of RFC 2231. So, apparently, his position was not (entirely) in line with
yours, which was my point.

  RFC 2047 cannot be used (at least for emails) not because there's
RFC 2231 but because using RFC 2047 for header field parameters
is  in violation of RFC 822/STD 11.

 Moreover, what's the role of JSP/servlet, PHP/Perl modules, ASP
(controls?) if it's not to make difficult/awkward things easy for
'end-users' ('end-developers', developers down the stream)?  Mozilla does
support it. Pine has no problem dealing with it. Why not brilliant
programmers at Sun and other places who work on those?
