I think the current behavior is by design.

As far as changing it to remove empty Nmh-Attachment headers,
it kind of rubs me the wrong way, because it might catch user

On the other hand, we remove unused Cc: headers, so it would
be consistent with that.

Should we remove all empty Nmh-* headers?  We don't have any
others now, but I'd like to see a consistent policy.
