True.  In perl it would be trivial, and I assume the case with python is
the same.  It would, however, slow down the delivery time on mail... But
if it is configurable then it can always be turned off.  How does this

  [radio]     Look for and open multipart-MIME messages
  [input]kb   Do not archive attachments greater than this size
              Do not archive attachments with the following mime-types:
  [text box containing wildcard stuff like application-*]

And heck, it may as well be generalized so that you could perform these
actions on the main list as well (ie, don't send any application-msword
attachments ever)  :)
