The author (www.zeegee.com) has started doing some more work on it
recently, and has produced new beta versions of the MIME-tools. So I think
this is already in hand. Whether he will get as far as producing something
decent is another matter, but I think we will have to wait and see.

If you want to give him a hand with the development, then I hope he would
be grateful for the help.
