Re: MIME boundary question recap

For robustness, I suggest:

(a) MIME composers MUST avoid emitting boundaries such that 
    one boundary is a substring of another.  (However, MIME readers
    MUST NOT refuse to process a message because it has such

(b) MIME readers MUST ignore trailing whitespace in lines that 
    are less than 1000 characters long, when examining a line
    to see if it is a boundary marker.   (However, since a
    boundary marker can contain no more than 74 characters before any
    padding whitespace, including leading and trailing '-' 
    characters, any line with non-white-space characters after
    the 74th position cannot be a boundary marker.)
