The proper way to override $MANGLE_EXTENSIONS is to set it in your
/etc/procmailrc or your personal .procmailrc file before calling the
sanitizer. The sanitizer won't set $MANGLE_EXTENSIONS if it is already
in the environment.

You should *never* have to edit the sanitizer file itself to
customize its behavior to your needs.

  The first time I saw a bagpipe, I thought the player was torturing
  an octopus. I was amazed they could scream so loudly.
