The person who added that code wanted to do filtering based on MIME
attachments, e.g. disallow attachments, only allow certain types of
attachments, etc.  The problem is, the module it's using to parse MIME
messages sometimes reformats paragraphs, and that breaks GPG
signatures.  It really shouldn't have ever been released with that
option turned on by default.

There have been a lot of changes to it in CVS (some of them by me!),
but you're right that's it's been a long time since the last release,
and that no one's monitoring the bug tracker.

Hopefully the fact that Simon has started up that mailing list is an
indication that he wants to jumpstart support for the module.
