Hi Lukas,

yep, I've been using the perl based decoders for some time now. In
Debian, the mime-codecs package which contained the ones which use to
be part of VM was discontinued a while back. 

Your correct on where you saw the details for the perl
decoders/encoders for VM, thats where I found out about the perl based
ones as well.
