Since there is existing, actively-maintained code in Emacs for sending
attachments, it's incorrect to add yet another library for this.
Assuming the status quo, with mail-mode and message-mode separate,
adding mime functionality to mail-mode should involve calling this
existing code.

Message mode is actively maintained by the Gnus maintainers, so this
point is irrelevant.  And there is no other salient objection to message
mode, as far as I can tell.
