The protocol question has already been decided. Enigmail 1.9 will use
PGP/MIME by default.

Furthermore, you can change the default to PGP/MIME in the account
settings, and you can specify PGP/MIME to be the protocol for certain
specific email addresses using per-recipient rules. I doubt that more
automatic changes would make things easier.
