Weeellll ... yeah, you're right.  That should be made clearer.  I think
if you specify -noconcat it will be moreproc, but it's a blank otherwise,
which is a marker to tell the display portion "just blast this straight

You're saying you tried:

mhshow-show-text/plain: %lcat %F

I would have thought that would have worked.  I just tried it, and it did
for me.

I suspect the key there is a) you're using show, and b) the messages
that are not showing a marker do not have MIME headers.  In that case
show would never call mhshow.
