	I'm not sure how attachments would be handled in non-MIME format. 
I would be interested to know what would happen.

	I suspect that attachments would not be handled well in non-MIME 
format, and that the only solution to your problem is to modify the 
mailman digestifier code so that it uses inline MIME multipart/mixed 
bodyparts, but I don't know what it would take to make it do that.

	Certainly, many incoming messages might have to be changed (since 
on a per-message basis, having all the attachments at the bottom 
shouldn't be a problem).  This would most likely break PGP signed 
messages, and I'm not sure what might happen to others.
