This will cause some side-effects when one uses Eudora Pro 2.2 as
mail reader.
Eudora Pro seems to take this as an excuse to store the attachment
as a text-file instead of a .defanged-doc. 
It also in at least one case turned on text-wrapping, thus destroying
source-code sent. 
( Though I am at a loss at why source-code was mailed in an attachment
type that got caught in the defanging loop.... )

Just thought you wanted to know.
