[Nmh-workers] mhbuild Balks at message/rfc822.

I received a bounce for an email to a third party.  I wanted to email
them directly, explain what had gone wrong, and pass on the original
message/rfc822 that was part 3 of the bounce email.  I comp'd a new
email with a `#message/rfc822 /path/to/42.3.email' only to be told on

    mhbuild: use "#forw [+folder] [msgs]" instead of "#message/rfc822"

I don't want to do that in this case since AFAIK, #forw forwards on a
whole email:

    42    multipart/report
    42.1      text/plain
    42.2      message/delivery-status
    42.3      message/rfc822

I ln(1)'d 42.3.email to 42 and `#forw +/path/to 42' as a workaround.

Anyone here know the logic that stops me shooting my foot if I so wish
in the venerable Unix tradition?  It's healed nicely since the last

Cheers, Ralph.
