Hi Stefano,

Mime4j is not very much on top of my personal priorities right now
(sorry) but I will try to look into your proposed code changes in the
next couple of days.

Without having looked into the code I would tend to trust you and Oleg
to come up with a good solution and a better Mime4j than what we have

By the way, I think there were no commits to trunk after you started
your branch. So once consensus is reached it would be possible to "svn
rm trunk" and "svn mv cycleclean trunk".

The result would be the same as if all development happened in trunk
so I think in this case there is no reason to veto a merge only
because it's a merge.
