I'd say that it would work far better if things were changed to MIME
formats. You would send a message by recursively encapsulating your
message to be remailed inside a MIME message. Simple and clean...
Personally, I vastly prefer that things that can be handled with
header lines be handled that way.
MIME may be general and handle messages with mixed data, but the
Big-Ugly-Block style that everything seems to be moving to is, well,
overly big and overly ugly.
When the data in a message is of a single type, adding all of this
ugly MIME bulk is neither simple nor clean. It's artificial
complexity and needless blecherousness.
Recursive encapsulation needn't affect how any particular level looks.
