good point -- certainly should have been considered.  in defense of
the commits, a) i kind of like the parallelism with the part
separators (-markform), and b) i think it would have been harder to
disable the message separator header with a show or mhshow commandline
option if it were generated by mhl.  (possible, but harder)
