I don't understand the point of these changes.  They potentially break
people's filters without actually improving the code much or the API
at all, which still relies on a whole bunch of magical global
variables and global functions.

If you're going to introduce breaking changes, you might as well fix
all of the code and improve the API to reduce technical debt.  In
fact, I did this a year ago with Mailmunge[1] and it only took a few
weeks; I'm disappointed in the direction of MIMEDefang development.  I
realize that it's out of my hands now, but as the original author I
still feel a certain connection to MIMEDefang.
