I'd suggest that it be generalized some, so that maybe there is a profile
entry that lists order of preference for alternatives:

    mhshow-preferred-types: text/plain text/html text/richtext

That way, it can be used if any other types pop up...

I couldn't find that decision point either...I'm GUESSING that it just
ends up taking the last alternative of the set and shows that one (or
something like that)...whether or not that's intentional, I don't know.
Maybe you could have a mail filter that reorders the alternatives before
delivering it? :)
