which is questionably applicable to inline PGP signatures since
they're base64-encoded and therefore consist only of printable ASCII
characters.  Anyhow, RFC means Request For Comments and one comment on
it suggests that inline PGP be specifically excepted.

The reason I use inline PGP is that I'm sick of getting replies from
people saying, "hey, I can't open that weird attachment that you sent
me".  If you all are correct about mailing lists breaking PGP/MIME,
then I now have a second good reason.
