    Anomy does it's darndest to detect uuencoded attachments and handle
    them according the the same rules as it handles other attachments.

    The copies of MyParty that I've received so far were correctly
    handled - please let me know if it doesn't work for you (and send me
    samples!). Note that feat_uuencoded must be set to 1 (the default)
    for this to work.
