Oh, thanks Chris, that's what I should have said.  Shows you how much I
know about MIME.

I should point out that BizTalk has the requirement that the XML envelope
occur as the "root" part of the multipart/related structure.  (See BizTalk
2.0 Section 9.1 "Multipart MIME Structure.")  I interpreted this to mean
the first MIME part.  Do we need a similar requirement?
