Well, BEEP messages have RFC822 headers (like email or HTTP) so you  
could put this in one of those.

...except that Vortex's API doesn't provide any way to get or set  
those headers, except for the content-type. :-(

You can always make up your own way of storing metadata in the payload  
— for example, prefix the file with the filename and a NUL byte.
