Thilina, I don't see this as a catch - isn't it impossible to get to any
attachments without buffering the SOAP envelope? Or are you thinking
about reading the SOAP envelope and buffering it IFF someone actually
refers to an attachment? 

While that's interesting in theory, whoever sent the attachment more
often than not expected the other end to read the darn thing. I don't
see the point of that potential optimization. Maybe I'm missing
