+1 to both, but in the defense of the original author ... there was
significant disagreement (and there still is to a lesser degree) as to
how we should integrate MIME functionality into nmh; I view
mhshow/mhstore as a compromise where we could get some working
functionality and see what is useful and what is not.

Although better handling of word wrap for replies sure would be nice.
