[Nmh-workers] new mhmail

mhmail(1) has been replaced on master.

mhmail [addrs ...] [-body text] [-cc addrs ...] [-from addr]
       [-subject subject]
       [switches for post ... | [-profile [switches for send ...]]
       [-version] [-help] [-debug]

It has these differences from the old mhmail:
* Instead of silently not sending an empty message, notifies user
  "mhmail: empty message not sent, use -body '' to force."
* The old mhmail dropped a trailing newline from the -body argument.
* Supports all post(8) (by default, without -profile) or send(1)
  (with -profile) options.
* Optionally (with -profile) obeys the users profile, including
  AliasFile and send entries.
* Adds -debug option for debugging (sending, not incorporating new mail).
* Drops support for undocumented -queue option.

To do:
* add support for undocumented -resent old mhmail switch
* add -attach file ... switch
