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
Message-like objects.

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
like.

Thanks Barry and Fred for the clarification and new toy.
