Both, so this is the third time in nmh history.  Let's settle it once and
for all.

The only responsible choice is to include the prefix.  Otherwise, we
run the risk of messages leaking out with internal pseudoeheader names.
Like this message!

Note that Nmh-Attach and Attach are synonomous.  And all others, except
Envelope-From:, used by nmh originated with MH.

Does anyone manually insert "Attach:" into their draft messages?
