I'll throw in my thanks as well, but I will point out one sticky wicket:
If you're running qmail, you need to change the ownership of the
/blahblah/html/stripmime directory to the 'alias' user. Now all I need
is a tip for how to get stripmime to fix the subdirectories it creates
so that the 'nobody' user can deliver up the decoded files. I get "you
don't have permission" in my browser when I copy/paste the link. Looking
in /home/httpd/html/stripmime I see:

#ls -la
drwx------    2 alias       nofiles        4096 Feb 13 12:44
982097049-32437/

In other words... the 'mkdir "$basefilepath",0755' bit isn't setting
0755 permissions...
