My "lightweight" implementation is currently ~20KB (organized in 6
files) plus ~16KB of new code for mail-utils.el file.

I'm perfectly fine with the idea to put those 20KB in one file (let's
call it lisp/mail/mime.el)

You're right, that sounds suboptimal.  However, I'm afraid that Gnus
people will not like the idea of adapting Gnus to a new code and I
don't want to force them to do this.  Then again, there may be almost
no adaptation needed.
