nmh doesn't have any other -<upper case> switches, either.
I'll change it to -headerfield, that's consistent with
-draftfolder, all the -no* switches, etc.

The switch can be abbreviated to -hea(derfield), I think
that's good enough.

We have the RFCs to blame for that.  I'll update the
documentation (and -help message, which was its only
appearance in the code.)
