Its all about definitions.

Sometimes when authors refer to "MimeFilter" (sorry I can't think of
any examples now) they mean: get rid of all that MIME stuff.

It seems MimeFilter is slightly better then this, you can tell it what
to filter out.

I can't think of much application for it (probably lack of
imagination), but think it might be useful if you could filter out
*.exe files, for instance, on public mailing lists.
