Hey Doug,
Are you aware that there is a pure python implementation of the 
quoted-printable stuff in the std lib (I think in quopri.py, but I cant

I hope your supervisor doesn't find out about your sf activities ;-)
I have my final presentation for my thesis today. That means, tomorrow 
I'll have some time for some python hacking.
