I got a crazy idea... why don't we actually _display_ mms messages? Is
this actually difficult or is it a matter of nobody having the time /
care to do it?

... research ...

OK, my new rough guess is that the issue is that MMS has some
carrier-specific configs?

The wiki discuss page mentions mmslib, which is actually a PHP library
that claims to decode MMS messages. Anyone play with that?
