Okay, here's my thinking, for what it's worth:

- "send" in my mind is mostly a front-end to "post" (or whatever you
  have your postproc set to).  You need to give it a already-formed draft.
- mhmail is more of a replacement for "mailx"; it does the draft composition
  for you.

So I'm thinking ... well, I think putting a lot of mhmail into send is the
wrong way to go.  Different tools and all.  We still have people using
mhmail, so my vote would be to simply fix up mhmail.
