I recently ran into a question while working on a debugging tool that
I think this group may be best suited to answer.

How likely is an HTTP response with a MIME type of multipart/*?

  1. theoretically possible, but not actually done.
  2. used in research but not in actual practice. 
  3. used in some very specialized applications.
  4. incredibly common, and I'd have to be an idiot for not noticing.
  5. other answer

I'm trying to decide if this case is worth spending programming time on.
The program I'm working on acts as a client in an HTTP transaction, and
performs programmed tests on the response.

Thanks in advance,
G. Wade
