Proper maintenance requires a familiarity with the relevant RFCs; the
Gnus maintainers have this expertise, and we should leverage this to the
greatest extent possible.

Thus, even if we keep mail-mode, due to vested interests, I am opposed
to adding a "simple" (and possibly standards-noncompliant) mime library.
We should instead make use of mml.el, because the Gnus maintainers have
already expended effort making it standards-compliant.
