My software just ignores the extra information in the uuencode header.
It uudecodes a stream, just like un-q-p or un-base64'ing something.
It uses any mode or file name information on the Content-Type or
Content-Disposition lines, with reasonable defaults based on MIME type.
It doesn't use "uudecode" at all.
