Re: [Nmh-workers] Line wrapping in mhl

Alright, so let me see if I can read the mood of the room ...

People aren't so crazy about adding more text formatting smarts to mhl;
that makes sense to me, I think whatever code I add wouldn't be as good
as something like fmt or par, and that's keeping with the toolset idea
of nmh.

So here's what I'm thinking might be useful:

- Create a filter option to disable the line wrapping inside of mhl.

- Create a filter option to run the body of the message through an external
  filter program.  Actually, it occurs to me that it would be easy enough to
  generalize this so it could be any component.  I am thinking that this
  would happen before the insertion of any prefix characters.

The only wrinkle I see about this in the future is that par currently doesn't
support UTF-8 (there's a patch which claims to do so ... maybe I should
bug the author of par about that).
