Re: Idle curiosity -- Time to implement MIME

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

It took less than one week to write the first version of mhn.  This was
a lot more than the parser.  There was a beta period of several months
in which some bugs were fixed and some enhancements added.  Until last
week when a new bug was reported, I hadn't had to crack the code for
about four months...
