Well, geez Norm ... you've been around for approximately forever.  You
of all people should know the history of (n)mh and MIME support.  Back
when forw was written, MIME didn't exist.  forw -mime was added somewhere
along the way to allow people to forward a message and maintain the
MIME structure.  No one has yet written what you've asked for.

Should we support this?  Maybe; I can see the utility, but it would be
hard given the way things are structured now.
