Justin,
this is a real headache.
I would dearly love to keep those headers, and it will
harm interoperability that they are lost, but
*where can I put them?????*

When I define the bodypart (like the mime-tunnel one), the
answer is simple: Create a parameter for them.

When there is only one bodypart in a message, the answer
is simple too: Put them in the RFC-822-Headers extension.

But when I have (for instance) multipart Text/Plain, which
gateways into multiple GeneralText parts, there
is *no place* where I can put them that I can see.
Any suggestion?
