How to decode quoted printable with Mime object?

Aug 12 '16 at 11:52

I've got an email message, in this case from Gmail, that I've loaded into a Mime object. The body is HTML with quoted-printable encoding. When I retrieve the body with GetBodyDecoded() so I can render it, the resulting string still is in the quoted-printable format. How do I get the Mime object to decode that?
