Here are my thoughts.

At a bare minimum, Mailman should be able to strip a message to the 
plain-text part. DeMime does more than that (for instance, stripping the 
auto-added ad footers off of hotmail and yahoomail and etc), but we can 
argue if that is really mime related, or some other message-
prep/evaluation subsystem. either way, it'd be nice to have, but we 
could live without it.

Beyond that, though, I'd like a system that can control mime parts on a 
part-by-part basis. Either by saying "allow all except these 
mime-parts", or by saying "strip all but these mime parts". Any stripped 
part ought to be replaced with a text part that documents the 
modification by mailman.

Conceptually, not tough, but since you might need to start ripping apart 
nested mime-parts...
