forw -mime doesn't have a wonderful interface; what it does is generate
a mhbuild directive and it puts it in the draft message.  You then have
to run "mime" on the resulting draft for the right thing to happen.
This is actually all covered in the man page for forw(1); let me know if
it is unclear.

I'm not defending this practice; it's the way it's always worked and I am
unable to come up with a better solution at this time.  Maybe someday ...
