Sorry for the late response; the bug report has been sitting in a part
of the bug tracker that nobody has looked at due to a misunderstanding.

Yes, I agree.  In almost all the cases it guesses correctly, and if
there's anything I want to change (say "inline" to "attachment"), then I
can just edit the MML tags inserted.  That requires some expert
knowledge, though, so I'm not quite sure that everybody would be happy
with such a change...

Hm...  Or perhaps `C-u C-c C-a' would avoid all the prompts?  That would
be backwards-compatible...

I think it already guesses the disposition?

(mml-content-disposition "image/png")
=> "attachment"

But it defaults images to attachment.  I'm not sure...  do people
usually want images to be inline or attachments?  I'm not attached (heh
heh) to the current defaults...

Does anybody have opinions here?
