It's ok. I don't like your designs either :-)

Design is always a matter of taste, so it is impossible to satisfy
everyone. The current design is not meant to last 'till the end of
times, btw.

I slept over it, and decided that I don't think it is a problem to
name things after the rfc, but maybe the authors want to reconsider,
as few people start looking for things based on the rfc
number. Probably cl-mime, or mime.lisp, or whatever, is a bit more

...but I don't see any proplem with rfc???? names.

(and btw, what does 'arnesi' mean?)
