Ah, I see.  Then you can just read past the headers (read until you hit
a blank line) and then MD5-sum the rest.

:-) More than 100%?  (I know what you mean, but it sounds funny...)

Unfortunately, if you only want the body and not the headers, you're
going to have to remove the headers from INPUTMSG before passing them
to your md5-generator.

Right, because filter_end gets the top-level entity.  You need to specifically
MD5-sum the file "./INPUTMSG" (after skipping the headers).
