TBH I don't think it's very likely we'll do a major rewrite to
accommodate this case. Particularly if body-scanning is only likely to
happen for a smaller subset of messages, I'd just do it the way you're
doing it below.

You might try putting the `full-message' text in a temp buffer and
running `nnimap-transform-split-mail' on it first, that might clear up
some of the oddities of the body text itself. I would keep both the
`save-restriction' and `save-match-data'. Otherwise looks like this will
do what you want!
