Actually, I also wonder - how this feature [do not show attachments]
will interact with not calling PAGER multiple times, for each MIME part.

Does the last one implies, that some kind of meta-message will be
constructed, and if someone send email with few text/x-diff's, for
example, user will see the message and the diff's with one shot of

If last one assumption is true, personally, I'd like to see attachments
instead of hiding them by default. Although, for binary ones, it can be
replaced with something useful, like:

[[ attachment: document.doc ]]
[[ type: application/msword ]]
[[ size: 10 Mb              ]]

All of this is of course from user perspective, I didn't dive much into
the code to judge how hard it's to implement.
