that's not true.  Nmh-Attachment headers can be inserted manually as
well, bypassing that "attach" error check. 

but i now see that i mis-parsed ken's original description.  if i
add some [clarification edits], does it still mean what ken meant
to begin with?

  - send runs "mhbuild -auto -nodirectives".  "-auto" means, "don't
    error out if there's a MIME-Version header, just don't process
    the draft" [including any Nmh-Attachment headers]. "-nodirectives"
    means "don't process directives".  But ...  [ even with -nodirectives, ]
    Nmh-Attachment headers are still processed.
