libmime is a MIME parser in the same vein as Expat, the stream-oriented XML parser.
As input is fed to the parser events are generated which an application can catch by registering event handlers. Such events include unix From_ line, start of entity, end of entity, entity boundary, header, end of headers, and body.
Additionally, libmime supports MIME message editing through a delta mechanism. Edit contexts are instantiated and changes applied to specific contexts. Edit contexts can then be expressed in standard unified diff format which, when applied to the input source stream, will result in the new message.

Make the build work: rewrite Makefiles, integrate the newly released pool allocator in libarena (better then used at Barracuda).
Release the Perl wrapper, Barracuda::MIME. The Perl wrapper exposes 100% of the libmime API.
Integrate either the ICU or Mozilla character set detection algorithms to replace the best-fit guessing strategy currently used (useful for Spammers who lie about such things, and broken message generators).
Download the 0.0.0 alpha release tarball.
Source has been sanitized for public release. The build framework has been removed and will need to be replaced. Also, IBM ICU is required, as well as libarena. Integration with non-internal versions of these libraries/interfaces still needs to occur for compilation to work.
