My idea is not to transcode in anything.  Just decode it to Emacs internal
coding and leave it at that.  The folder can be saved to disk using whatever
coding Emacs or the users chooses.  It could be an ISO coding, for instance.
The coding used to save the folder is not VM's concern.

Is it not valid mime to have text/plain parts without a charset parameter?
