[some hours later]

my quick&dirty hack:

def decode(str)
  str = str.gsub(/=\?iso-8859-(1|15)\?q\?(.*?)\?=/i){|x|
          x.gsub(/=\?iso-8859-(1|15)\?q\?/i,"") [0..-3].unpack("M*").to_s.tr("_"," ")}
  str = str.gsub(/=\?iso-8859-(1|15)\?b\?(.*?)\?=/i){|x|
          x.gsub(/=\?iso-8859-(1|15)\?b\?/i,"") [0..-3].unpack("m*").to_s.tr("_"," ")}
  str
end

not a perfect conversion, but at least -1 and -15, Q and B cases
are readable and that's good enough for me

the Ruby experts may suggest now a way to roll both into one ;-)

uhhhh... nearly 4am, better go to bed now,
