Yes, I understand. But let me explain my situation: I'm trying to use
libmailutils to create my own mailfilter. And the main idea of this filter
is that it could extract an attachment, most importantly, just like most
popular MUAs. Not better not worse, just like.

The above example shows the attachment "bizzona.jpg" in my
Thunderbird( and MS Outlook 2003 (others I have not tested). And
my interest that it also could be extracted by my filter. Yes, this is
invalid according to RFC, so MUAs should ignore it, but they are not.

Sergey, what is your advice to me in this situation? May be possible to
have an additional option for enabling additional not RFC "hacks" into
