There are reasons you don't want to do that. Footers work OK for single
part email messages. They don't make so much sense in multipart messages.
You can probably take a crap shoot and add the footer to the first
text/plain part and not break things. This won't work so well for multipart
alternative messages that have text/plain and text/html parts. You could
also try to insert a footer in to the html part, but thats a bit trickier
since you can't just put it at the end.

However, since the postgres lists are mostly just using text/plain parts
for message bodies and there are already footers being used to distribute
tips, it wouldn't make things significantly worse to add unsubscribe
information as well.

I would prefer just making the unsubscribe instructions easy to find on
the web.
