    Hi all,

    I rencently had trouble finding a bug in an email processing script
    because of an error that pass silently in the email module.
    The get_payload() method in the email.message module always return
    something when the decode argument is set to True.
    This behaviour is well documented, but is their a reason to catch the
    decoding errors ?
    Why not let them pop-up to the calling code ?
    Do you think it's worth submitting a RFE ?
