I've got a trick which sort-of does that.

I have `-editor zprompter' in .mh_profile for repl. zprompter is a zsh
script I've written that is a bit like prompter. Among other things, it
  exec 3>$1
  if [[ -n $editalt ]]; then
    mhshow -part 1 -form mhl.null -file $editalt | sed -e '1 d' -e 's/^/> /' >&3

`-part 1' is not perfect. It doesn't even limit things to plain text
but it works with HTML too given the right filters to pass to pass HTML
through lynx -dump. There was also a patch I posted last December that
you'd you want to apply (or get nmh from CVS).
