Is MIME something a user needs to care about? (i.e. isn't that something
that can be shielded from the user?)

Grtz

It's tempting to try to make something simple. The simple cases seem
to be covered by

  http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-klyne-message-rfc822-xml-03

Though that's clearly been stalled for, uh, 9 years.

The problem with the less simple cases is handling all of the MIME
encoding/disposition/id/boundary/etc. malarkey.

We have machinery for (at least some of) MIME, in p:http-request, but
that seems to set the bar pretty high for the simple case.

Meh.
