Where did the second implementation live?

Well, ok, but I find it somewhat puzzling that anybody would think
that Emacs didn't have something as basic as qp en/decoding somewhere
in its vast mass.

I think a better solution than writing yet another implementation
would be to move gnus/qp.el to mime/qp.el, and remove the
dependencies on mm-util (which is basically a compatibility library
between a bewildering array of X/Emacs versions).

You mean in Message?  That's handled by font-lock, which has a
tendency to stop highlighting extremely long lines after a certain
point.  I'm sure it's customizable.  :-)
