OK, I may be too busy to contribute at the moment but I can't ignore
provocative messages like this one :)

I don't use any custom mhl so I'm fine if it changes.  *BUT*, I think that
the default behavior after the change should be the same as the default
behavior today unless there's a good reason to change it.  It would probably
be nice for heavy mhl users to have a converter from old to new.

BTW, this may just be laziness on my part, but one thing that really annoys
me these days is receiving an email sent from a phone.  The message displays
just fine, but when I reply to it the original message doesn't get decoded;
it's included as base-64.  I also notice this with some other messages that
are quoted/printable with the = stuff.  Is there some way to make this work
that I just haven't taken the trouble to do?  If so, please clue me in.  If
not, it's something that I think needs to be addressed.
