i'll attach a script i use for forwarding attachments.  it
handles the common binary types i use, plain files, and mail
messages, based on interpreting its arguments.  it produces the
mhbuild input text necessary to do the forwarding on its stdout --
so, when composing mail in vi, i can type something like:

    :r !forward foobar.zip

or even 

    !!forward foobar.zip

for files, or 

    !!forward cur-last

to forward messages.

it's far from perfect, i'm sure, but it saves me trying to remember how
to compose mhbuild lines by hand.
