Yes, we did look at MIME::Lite, although we didn't do anything as fancy as search the HTML for images. We just had a list of the images necessary, and did something like:
foreach $image (@htmlimages) { $msg->attach( Type => 'image/gif', Id => $image, Path => "./$image" ); }
We had no trouble makeing HTML email with images, or email with attachments, or email with a text alternative, I simply couldn't find a way to combine all three.

The trick is the nesting a multipart/related inside a multipart/alternative inside a multipart/mixed message, while still having content parts outside the innermost section. If I had something like:
$msg->close(Type => multipart/related);
I could probably do it.
