You could use the $ regexp to match a newline. The following rule
matches whether the name (or filename) parameter is on the same line
as the Content-Type or Content-Disposition header field or not and
doesn't care about the actual content type. Note that that parameter
is "filename" in the Content-Disposition header field.
