Please *don't* make this change unless you can answer this question:
how do you send a binary part that doesn't terminate with a CR-LF?
That's that reason why there are two CR-LFs at the end of a text part --
one is part of the body part, and the other is part of the terminator.
I realize that all public MIME implementations in today's world with
encode binary parts, but who knows what may happen in the future. I
certainly would like to see MIME remain neutral with respect to transmission
