It's got nothing to do with what's in the attachment,
ASCII or otherwise.

The problem is simply that I do not want Content-ID headers
to appear in the message that I create.

My big-hammer solution is to disable output of Content-ID's,
under control of an option to mhbuild.

Another approach might include (among other things) insertion of <> in
the directives that X-MH-Attachment generates just before the [:

  #text/plain; name="foo.txt"; x-unix-mode=0644 <>[ English text ] /tmp/foo.txt
  #application/pdf; name="foo.pdf"; x-unix-mode=0644 <>[ Adobe Portable 
Document Format (PDF) v1.2 ] /foo/multiatt.pdf

Would there be a reasonable way to do that?  I see where it
would be done in the code, in make_mime_composition_file_entry ().
But I don't see a convenient way to change what goes into those
directives.  Maybe add a configure option?
