Isn't that just another level of code, documentation, and grokking by
the user when Nmh-Forward would just sit there, be spotted and
understood by the user, and typically left alone.  Either the message
numbers might be edited, or the whole line deleted.  I actually think
it's an advantage to see that this is a Nmh header and not one that may
have general purpose interpretation.

Cheers, Ralph.
