Is an override required?  It could always try to send 8-bit...

When nmh hands over the email to send using SMTP it would be nice if it

    SMTP Service Extension for 8-bit MIME Transport

perhaps it does, and wanted an EHLO response with 8BITMIME support
before sending any top-bit-set bytes.  Maybe it already does this.
