This happens in the remailing step. It should still be possible (for
maintainers, at least) to download raw messages and sort out the
attachments. It's a bit of a pain to rmember how, though: I tried it
out with mutt just now: "mutt -f Desktop/wishlist", show message, then
"v", then "s" to save the relevant part.
