I was more thinking about preserving MH's historic flexibility.  I guess
my point was I'd prefer something like this (all are aliases to 'repl')

calaccept: -typearg text/calendar accept
calreject: -typearg text/calendar reject

Rather than:

calaccept: -calendar accept
calreject: -calendar reject

Does that make sense?  I don't really like the name 'typearg', I was just
trying to make the point that I'd like the options to repl be able to be
used for any MIME type.
