             Summary: Make the MIME analyzer a FAF analyzer
                 Key: BIT-1073
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1073
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Bro
    Affects Versions: git/master
            Reporter: Matthias Vallentin

We should convert the MIME analyzer to use FAF, allowing other components to reuse it. Specifically, I noted this in the process of bringing back the POP3 analyzer. Ideally, we can just feed the contents of the download emails via the RETR command into a FAF-based MIME analyzer. Then we wouldn't have to rebuild functionality that's close to the SMTP analyzer.

In summary, we should factor the MIME analysis into a separate analysis unit.
