before, the output was a linearized version of the mime tree, in
particular removing the multipart pieces and only enumerating the leaves
in a depth-first walk of the tree.

So a message like this:

A???multipart/signed 355339 bytes
B ???multipart/mixed 353462 bytes
C ???text/plain 235 bytes
D ???image/jpeg attachment [foo.jpg] 352752 bytes
E ??application/pgp-signature attachment [signature.asc] 1030 bytes

would come out with three parts:

 1) C
 2) D
 3) E

the new code assigns this message to 5 parts:

 1) A
 2) B
 3) C
 4) D
 5) E

This change is critical to be able to properly delineate which parts of
a message were signed and/or encrypted.
