Bug#176606: elm-me+: wishlist: support for non compliant MIME headers

Package: elm-me+
Version: 2.4pl25ME+100-1.woody.ed.0
Severity: wishlist

Could you add the very simple patch below to allow ELM to decode MIME headers
that don't expose a MIME-Version field? Some of the mails I receive every day
contain only a Content-Type field in their header but no MIME-Version.
This patch allow to ELM take into account such emails and proceed them through
internal or metamail decoder.

Thanks in advance.
