I currently strip to text/plain and remove all other mime. Fairly soon, that
won't work any more (among other things, we're headed to multi-byte
character sets and supporting all sorts of interesting languages and other
stuff). Which means instead, I'm going ot have to decide what is and isn't
safe, and strip mime parts that aren't. Attachments are coming by popular
request. HTML is coming, as is Swedish and Mandarin. So the trick is to make
all that work and be as safe as possible, because not doing it is no longer
going to be an option...

Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh
nervously and change the subject.
