If you've only received one post from me, this could obviously be the source
of your problems.

Anyway, it's obvious I haven't convinced you of this fact, though I might
argue no coherent arguments. The "unreadable" thing about multipart was ment
to be unreadable because it is an accurate description of how what you
propose would handle a particular situation.

a) duplicated information
b) and what about the <say>?
c) multipart standard for forwarding of Jabber messages?
d) another engine, one that is not needed.
e) and clients not supporting MIME?

Handle these. I've spent plenty of time outlining my solutions, you've just
said "put MIME in." Please expand.
