OK. Done. This, however, made no real difference with the results of the 
MIME::Entity->attach action. The output bodypart was still 'double-encoded'.

OK, I finally managed to get the contents of the bodypart correct by 
using the as_string method for $entity->bodyhandle during 'filter' 
phase. Is that the correct/best way to do it, or should I have used 
another approach?
