Why not start with a Mime4j module?

Later it can become an independent product. That product would have to
have a Mime4j-submodule though because I'd like to have that
higher-level API that accepts a Mime4j message and extracts sender and
recipient addresses from it, too.

Out of curiosity, how do filter a stream with NIO? (Canonical CRLFs,
escape dots at the beginning of a line.)

A Mime4j message has a writeTo(OutputStream) method.. What would have
to be done on that side? Add a writeTo(WritableByteChannel) method?

And is it worth it? I mean I've never had performance problems with
JavaMail's transport which is stream based..
