I want to look at this as soon as I work through the backlog of stuff
that's kept me quiet recently.

In case it helps, my workaround for the issue at the moment is to do
repl -noformat
and then, once the editor (vi in my case) is up, go to the last line
and do something like

:r! mhshow -part 2 -form mhl.null -nopause|fold -s -w78|sed 's/^/> /'

It isn't pretty, but I consider it less irritating than the problem it

All of this is really up to mhl. I think the real problem, when you get
down to it, is that nmh's MIME capabilities have been kept separate. What's
really required, in my opinion, is to make mhl's formatting language
