This is now possible.  I currently only decode attachments that are in
base64 and quoted printable formats; all others are sent as is.

I’m not using a lot of mailutils.  I use the following procedures:

- mu-address-get-email
- mu-address-get-personal (problem: swallows non-ASCII characters)
- mu-header-decode
- mu-decoder-port

Of all these only “mu-decoder-port” would be non-trivial to implement.
It’s used to decode strings that are encoded as “quoted-printable”.  It
wouldn’t be too difficult to implement in pure Guile – I just wanted to
save time.

I’d be happy if your work on email parsers could end up in mumi and
replace some of my own poor quality code :)
