For anyone frustrated that Debian's stable distribution doesn't include
an appropriate version of the Mime tools and IO-stringy libraries
(libmime-perl and libio-stringy-perl in Debian), I've just repacked the
versions from the testing distribution into a form that will install on
stable systems.

They're available from
or using apt, with the line:
deb lemon main

BUT BEWARE! there are also several other packages in that archive that you
may or may not want installed. If you just add the above line and then
"apt-get update; apt-get install libmime-perl libio-stringy-perl" and
then comment out the line again & re-update, you should be OK.

As usual, I don't guarantee anything about any of the content you find
there; particularly not that it will work as expected ;)
