You could use profile entries like mhshow-charset-iso-8859-1 to run a
script that would run iconv. The script would sometimes get a filename
and sometimes a command from, e.g, the mhshow-show-text/html profile
entry so it wasn't simple. It is much much simpler now so thanks for the
changes. It doesn't reflow text but that's easy from vim with formatprg
set to par.

This is more flexible than what we have for mhshow (being able to match
content-type and disposition flags). So this could also benefit mhshow.
The trailing ",flowed" could perhaps be handled instead as something
like "filter=par". But, it then starts looking inconsistent with the use of
things like mhshow-show-text/html which is specifying a sort-of external
filter in a different way.

One thought with the marker is that it could be inserted in the form of
a #forw mhbuild directive. You could then choose to include individual
attachments in a reply (or forward). The only problem is that #forw
doesn't support selecting individual message parts: only a whole
message. Currently forwarding messages with attachments is something
that could be better which this might achieve.
