My objective is to be able to use -attach, which is straightforward
and safer than dealing with mhbuild directives directly, to generate
MIME messages that 1) all versions of Outlook can understand, and 2)
are RFC 1806 and 2183 compliant.  mhbuild -nocontentid now gets me 1).
If we can get mhbuild -contentdisposition going, I'll have 2).
