Oo, shiny, and items() does the Right Thing this time around! Only
had a couple hours to play with this as yet, but it sure looks like it
does a nice job of avenging the sins of the current message handlers.
FWIW, this is a message filter embedded in a C program and I'm trying
to make it easy for the user to take advantage of Python's stock
It looks like since the rfc822 and mimelib Message objects do both
parse file-like objects and return compatible items() lists, the user
can work from either module family and have everything Just Work. I
Thanks Barry and Fred for the clarification and new toy.
