I know we've discussed it several months ago but....
This topic of "MIME::Tools" patches keeps tripping up MS folk, and causing
a constant background trickle of problems. And for new MS folk, it gets
them off to a rocky start with the MS product, potentially giving MS a
poorer name than the excellent one it undoubtedly deserves.
Is there no way that we (the MS community) can either encourage the
MIME::Tools authors to update the code, or to adopt "MIME::Tools"
ourselves? (Obviously when I write "we", I mean "one of us except me"!)
