Well, almost...  As long as we don't use ->each_part.
Will likely go with this revert:

Subject: [PATCH] xt: remove eml_check_roundtrip

If there's no body ({bdy} field), ->each_part set the {bdy}
field to "\n" and the ->as_string result afterwards is one
extra "\n" byte longer than the original.

It's not worth extra cycles in common ->each_part calls to
ensure 100% round-trip matches of header-only messages (which
are likely spam), especially when the only difference is a
trailing "\n".
