At this point, not much. How does the Mac figure out that the
attachment is an Applescript program?

I'm planning on adding mime type processing in addition to filespecs
for v2. You'd also be able to poison the specific full filename
(assuming any of the flippin' AV notices include it).

But in v1 it would have to have a specific filename extension.
