Comment (by robin):

 I'm adding a bit more error handling, it's always good to catch things
 that aren't as expected.

 Also a note: the parsing creates a number of new string objects each time.
 In this case it doesn't really matter because the code won't be executed
 that often (relative to the rest of the HTTP code), but generally it's
 better to avoid that and also keep the style consistent with how other
 code is doing the parsing. The MIME code has some helpers already.
