It seems the ML strips (at least) application/pkcs7-signature of
S/MIME, those should be in DEFAULT_PASS_MIME_TYPES.  (A little bit
funny that now that everybody goes for DKIM and we see this
terrible "Name via List <list>" everywhere, personal and conscious
signatures end up mutilated.)

Having said that, my Mailman (v2.* based) did pass a message with
an image recently even though these are not in PASS_MIME_TYPES.
(The message got stuck in a moderator queue first.  And my gut
feeling tells me that whenever a queue is involved, trouble is
ahead.  Like endless tries to notify posters of non-member post
attempts that await moderator approval etc.  But .. off-topic.)
