Almost.  Actually, I believe that text mode signatures +
avoiding trailing whitespace is the way to go:  This way,
(1) illusions are avoided, and (2) the implementation is
robust against transports which corrupt trailing white
space - after all, such transports are one of the things
MIME ist trying to guard against.
