I'm doing things slightly different.


This gem strips the attachments, and *additionally* looks for the best
form of *plain text* it can get out of the message.  If it is ascii +
html, it keeps the ascii.  HTML only? no problem, it renders it to ascii.
In any event, what comes *out* has no attachments, and is *plain* ascii.
We haven't seen a single inappropriate (for *type* of content at least)
post hit the lists since.
