Hi Pekka.
I have similar experience with swedish mailing lists. Pipermail don't know
about MIME. Python have class library support for MIME, but someone has to
make it onto the Pipermail code. Half a year ago I thought I could give it
some time but it didn't happen.
Open question: Is there anyone working on this?
You could try to integrate MonArc or Hypermail. They are both MIME aware,
although written in Perl. I don't have pointers in hand, but I could dig
it up for you if you want.
