the object i had in mind performs a character search of the bodies and
fields of one MIME document. this isn't a byte-wise but
character-based search which requires decoding of transfer encodings
and setting appropriate charsets. the function isn't complex but
getting the decoding right for each part is a little fiddly and
requires an understanding of MIME encoding.
