My original draft of that email said "you're probably the only person
who uses the the text/plain content", but then I remembered what mailing
list I am on :-)

My larger point is that, sadly, I've seen a distressing number of times
when the text/plain version of a multipart/alternative message is not
useful.  I really wish people who have a shitty text/plain part would
simply NOT bother and just generate text/html; I don't know why they
even bother to generate such a lousy text/plain part, but this is the
world we live in.  I suspect we (nmh users) might be the only users who
actually look at the text/plain content versus the text/html content.
