Description: 
Fellow Americans, you probably won't know what the hell this module
is for.  Europeans, Russians, et al, you probably do.  `:-)'.

For example, here's a valid MIME header you might get:

      From: =?US-ASCII?Q?Keith_Moore?= <moore@cs.utk.edu>
      To: =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Keld_J=F8rn_Simonsen?= <keld@dkuug.dk>
      CC: =?ISO-8859-1?Q?Andr=E9_?= Pirard <PIRARD@vm1.ulg.ac.be>
      Subject: =?ISO-8859-1?B?SWYgeW91IGNhbiByZWFkIHRoaXMgeW8=?=
       =?ISO-8859-2?B?dSB1bmRlcnN0YW5kIHRoZSBleGFtcGxlLg==?=
       =?US-ASCII?Q?.._cool!?=

The fields basically decode to (sorry, I can only approximate the
Latin characters with 7 bit sequences /o and 'e):

      From: Keith Moore <moore@cs.utk.edu>
      To: Keld J/orn Simonsen <keld@dkuug.dk>
      CC: Andr'e  Pirard <PIRARD@vm1.ulg.ac.be>
      Subject: If you can read this you understand the example... cool!

Supplement: Fellow Americans, Europeans, you probably won't know
what the hell this module is for.  East Asians, et al, you probably do.
`(^_^)'.

For example, here's a valid MIME header you might get:

      Subject: =?EUC-KR?B?sNTAuLinKGxhemluZXNzKSwgwvzB9ri7seIoaW1w?=
       =?EUC-KR?B?YXRpZW5jZSksILGzuLgoaHVicmlzKQ==?=

The fields basically decode to (sorry, I cannot approximate the
non-Latin multibyte characters with any 7 bit sequences):

      Subject: ???(laziness), ????(impatience), ??(hubris)
