This feature isn't anything you'd see differently in the UI, it just simplifies
mailnews back end code.

our mailnews rfc822 --> htmlm converter needs to support a stream converter
interface that necko provides. When you load documents into a window, the layout
engine will go to the necko stream converter service and ask it for a stream
converter that knows how to converter rfc822 to html. The necko service will
return our stream converter to layout and the conversion will happen. Right now
we are doing this by hand and it is forcing us to write the message into a temp
file before we can load it into a window.

In short, think of this as an architecture change and not a feature.

I'm just about done with converting mime to use Jud's stream converter interface
in addition to integrating with his stream converter service.

I have local mail running using all these new goodies (this meant I was able to
remove the tempMessage.eml hack for local message display).

I've finished checking in the changes to mailnews\mime such that our stream
converter supports the nsIStreamConverter interface that Jud put in the tree. We
also register ourselves now with his stream converter service with an
appropriate prog id so we can be invoked by the stream converter service.

Marking this bug as fixed.

I'm tempted to mark it verified too since I'm not really sure how QA can verify
this architectue change.

Scott,
QA has no resource to verify this bug.  Can I have your approval to just mark
it Verified or please advise.
Thanks,
Fenella
