yes, i understand (though i didn't really, before).

we could easily enhance mh-chart(7) and/or nmh(7) to describe some of
the doc/contrib contents.  alternatively, we should move the important
members of doc/contrib (mainly, replyfilter) somewhere where it
wouldn't be "untraditional" to give it/them a man page.  perhaps
replyfilter should move to libexec.

hmm.  i see that not everything in libexec has a man page.  that seems
worth thinking about as well.

in the same vein, if there's anything in the doc/nmh/README* files
that should be more accessible, we should try and fix that as well.
