I suspect at the end of the day, the module with the better functionality will win out, though it would be nice to see MIME::tools offer shims for the Email::MIME classes, but… it’s not vital.

Speaking of better functionality,

I noticed that:

my $entity = MIME::Entity->build(
	Disposition => undef

doesn’t work, but that:


does.  Any chance of fixing new() and build() to allow one to set views like ‘Content-Disposition’, ‘Content-Transfer-Encoding’, ‘MIME-Version’, ‘X-Mailer’, etc. to undef and have that do the right thing?

I’m running Fedora and have 5.503 so if this has subsequently been fixed, apologies…
