Right, those profile entries need the type.

I quickly prototyped an -outfile switch to mhstore, let me
know if you want me to finish it up and add it.  It's not
obtrusive:  there's already a ct_storage indicator in the
content description struct that mhstore fills in.  The
switch could fill it in instead.

One cannot :-/  It'd be easy enough to add yet another global
variable to convey the -noverbose setting to where it needs
to go, if desired.  Though with mhstore -outfile - 2>/dev/null,
that's not necessary.
