Ok... How about:

        Body-Termination-Regex: ^--$
        Body-Termination-Exclude-Regex: ^-----BEGIN PGP [ A-Z]*-----$
        Body-Termination-Exclude-Regex: ^-----END PGP [ A-Z]*-----$

Just EXPLICITLY exclude anything you don't want stripped...

(Don't know if I got my regular expression just right, but I think you
get the idea)

At some point (maybe already) the average header collection will exceed
the average message in size... Talk about overhead... :-)
