From a technical standpoint, what's the difference?

I shouldn't be saying this, but 'transport_filter'.

As for implementing the filter, the same problems as described in the
above link exist :
    o   how do you not break the MIME structure?
    o   how do you not break PGP/GPG signatures?
    o   how do you ensure that, in *all* cases, the result the reader
            sees is sensible and what you intended?


The remote desktop feature of Windows XP is really nice (and *novel*!).
As a Microsoft consultant can *remotely* disable the personal firewall
and control the system.  We'll ignore the fact that this tampering with
the firewall is not logged, and more importantly, that the firewall
isn't restored when the clowns from Redmond are done with their job.
