Yes, last weekend I have completed a small but extensible library
which is plugable into RMail. It is able to parse a MIME message of
any complexity and show it in the RMail buffer. I want, however, to
finish some open points before I submit it here.
BTW, it also does header decoding (RFC 2047).

I have found a variable called rmail-enable-mime, and some void
variables of type rmail-*-mime-* which don't fit into my
implementation and I don't understand why they are here anyway.

Open points are:

1) I want to have a single mechanism to hide header
   fields. Independent whether they come from the top-level entity
   (currently implemented by deleting/copying them) or any other

2) If I save an email to the file, I want it to be the same message
   as RMail read from my mailbox. I want to be able to read it from
   another mail client, for example.

3) I agree that some action (transfer-/charset decoding, PGP signature
   verification, etc.) is OK to do once in function called from
   rmail-convert-to-babyl-format, but some other (picture previews,
   big attachement hiding, etc.) should be done by every (?)
   rmail-show-message call.

I would like to hear some comments.
