Finally I am caught up with the messages.  I still didn't get the 
reasoning for taking out all the mime headers and putting them in as 
attributes to the <mime> tag.  If the client knows that this tag contains 
MIME, it just parses the MIME stream as usual.  Any existing MIME library 
will be able to do this.  By extraditing these headers into the <mime> 
tag, the client now must collect those headers for itself, and then 
resume MIME parsing.  Why is this being done?
