It definitely was not, because I wrote it :-)  First appeared in 1.5.

It turns out for parsing the MIME content all you really need is the
Content-Type header and the Content-Transfer-Encoding header; nmh already
has pretty good tools for getting access to arbitrary headers.  Required
some surgery to the format engine to make it work the way we needed for
this application, though.

Yeah, I have some thoughts in that direction, but it's going to be a big
job.  replyfilter was my attempt at a stop-gap solution.
