You get command line completion of filenames at the whatnow
prompt if your nmh was built with readline.  Quite useful when
using attach and detach.

The only way to set Content-Type with attach is via a
mhshow-suffix-application directive in your profile (or
mhn.defaults).  Given that MH messages don't have filename
extensions, there isn't a good way now to send them as
message/rfc822 with attach.  That's a case where a mhbuild
directive is the way to go.  attach isn't a complete replacement
for those.
