i've fixed this.

there's a new -headerform switch to mhshow, which, like -markform, lets
you specify the format for the per-message header.  the builtin default
looks like "[ Message inbox:14 ]".  this header appears within the scope
of your pager (unlike the show header we've been talking about in a
related thread).

mhshow also grew new -header/-noheader switches to turn this thing on
and off.  if show is given -header or -noheader, it will pass them on to

so there are still three (perhaps more) different formats of headers:

    >>> inbox:14                # from mhn
    (Message inbox:14)          # from show
    [ Message inbox: 14 ]       # from mhshow, customizable.

i think only one will be shown at a time.
