Because the mhbuild step can only turn a non-MIME email into a MIME one;
it can't handle being given a MIME email as input.  That's one niggle
with running "mime" at the moment;  if the mhbuild-directives need
improving and "mime" run again, one must undo the "mime" manually by
looking for the backup file in the drafts folder as there's no
"undomime" command.

Cheers, Ralph.
