OK.  I think that there should be a switch.  I guess it bugs me to see the
character-by-character examination of the message body on by default.

I understand that my attachment system does not handle non-ASCII message
bodies, but again, that's because non-ASCII message bodies are not "legal".
I think that you have justified extending nmh to handle "illegal" message
bodies.  I'm just nitpicking on the implementation details.

Could you please explain again how you get the character set information
for non-ASCII message bodies?  Sorry that I didn't save your original
message on this.  I seem to recall that you got it from the profile; I
would rather see you get this from the LANG environment variable.

BTW, I would suggest using isascii() rather than (*p > 127 || *p < 0).
