Large images get attached to the messages already, and Gnus displays them
inline just fine.  I think when the disposition type is `inline' we should
try to display it inline in the same article buffer if possible.  Otherwise,
it would be ok to display then in another buffer/frame like Gnus does when
it calls an external program to display an attachment.

Thanks.  Could you also look at the problem of moving mailcap.el and its
related files out of Gnus?  It seems an appropriate directory for them is
`lisp/mail' or `lisp/net'.  Do you see a better directory?
