htmlfmt is a Plan 9 thingy, right?  FWIW, for replyfilter I borrowed a page
from mha-mhedit and use w3m to translate HTML to plain text; it seems like
that would also be simple for nmh to use.  Although ... maybe nowadays it
wouldn't be so bad to simply convert to the desired format on the fly
for searching.  Okay, as David pointed out earlier that's okay for a
nmh tool like pick but not so great for a Unix tool like grep.
