  Unfortionatly, it's the price we pay for not using SMTP, which is what MIME is meant for.  We WILL be using MIME standard header types, just put differently..  Just like Content-Type is used a little differently for HTTP, we're using it a little differently for XML.

  I mean, should be just start adding SMTP protocol support into the jabber protocol, so we don;t need to have SMTP transports, but can send it out raw to sendmail?  ;-P
