Idle curiosity -- Time to implement MIME

Idle curiosity mind you ...

Those of you who have implemented MIME from scratch please try and answer
the following question:

How much effort (man months?) did it take to implement a MIME parser?

The parser must produce a data structure within which the body parts
are attached.  Must be able to produce a new instance of the message
(or any body part) from the data structure.

There must be no policy decisions in the parser on the order of presenting
the body parts; that is decided by other code.

Don't include RichText implementation ..
