Also, to defend the need for ASCII Armor parsing in a compatable

the message body.
Is this true for picture viewers, too?
I need to clarify my words above a bit. The API does not give a plugin the
ability to easily grab currently attached attachments, modify them, and
hand them back with PGP/MIME compliant semantics. It does allow one to
grab the filenames, encrypt the files on disk, and replace the attached
names with new names to encrypted files...
Not many Win/Mac MUA's allow one to make drastic changes to the headers
and attachments to create a PGP/MIME style message.
