I knew this was a problem, but I never drilled down to exactly which switches
were problematic.  Thank you for submitting this patch to clean that up.

In the larger meta-issue concerns (heh, I keep doing that today), if you
look at the original MH design show(1)'s job was to SELECT messages, and
mhl(1)'s job was to actually display them.  So keeping with that, mhl should
become MIME-aware and mhshow should just go away.  That's on my to-do list,
but sadly real life has gotten in the way.
