So, the activity on this bug suggests that we're not the only one who
has issues with this malformed MIME; other prominent MUAs (and listserv
software) refuse to parse this email.  My previous thinking was that if
nmh was the only client in the world that refused to deal with this then
there was absolutely no hope of getting the rest of the world on board,
but since we're not the only one there is a chance that enough people
will complain that offending software will get fixed.

But still ... choking on this just sticks in my craw.  What do people
think of a -force option (or something similar) that can override MIME
consistency checks like this one?
