Re: [Nmh-workers] repl -convertargs support committed on branch

iCalendar attachment support has been committed on the
convertargs branch.  docs/contrib/replaliases has some
handy shell aliases (functions, actually).  mhical(1)
has been added.

This introduces one change in default behavior:  mhshow/show
will display a formatted version of iCalednar (.ics)
attachments instead of their raw text.

Again, this is just on the convertargs branch.
