I wasn't criticising evolution to be fair, just more mailman for not
intelligently[1] injecting its footer into an attachment-laden message,
and windows live mail for being ... well, poo :)

[1] why mailman can't simply parse the existing mime enclosure
boundaries and tack its footer on at the end with the same boundary
instead of encapsulating the whole smash in its own mime enclosures

figure it out :)
