UUencoded attachments

one of our customers is using a webmail (squirrelmail or horde) that 
can't show uuencoded files as attachments, so they are shown as text.

MailScanner extract them correctly, and I think that could be a method 
to re-attach them in base64+MIME format.

I see a commented function in Message.pm:

## Try to detect and dispatch embedded uuencode as a fake multipart message.
## Returns new entity or undef.
#sub hunt_for_uuencode {

that could help to convert those uuencoded files to base64+MIME mail.
Any idea about how to use it?
