Inconsistent handling of cryted message bodies

As a result to the ongoing debate about NSA, Prism etc. the number of
notifictations we get for "undecipherable" mails we get is rising. People are
starting to use PGP more often.

amavis classifies PGP encrypted message bodies as undecipherable, but lets
S/MIME crypted message bodies pass without any note.

That's annoying, because I keep getting all those notifications about totally
legitimate mail.

I'd expect consistent behaviour - no matter which - for each methods that
crypt a message body.

Personally I'd want to have a contents_category of its own for all "encrypted"
mail, be it PGP, S/MIME or any other technology that creates crypted the
message bodies.

@Marc: Do you think you can add such or have S/MIME treated just like PGP
