mhfixmsg(1)'s -replacetextplain replaces the text/plain with a rendering
of the text/html part.  This is useful because the shipped text/plain is
often poor.

What if mhfixmsg could also append a new text/plain after the existing
one, i.e. with a rank that's `better quality'.  (Assuming RFCs allow two
multipart/alternative with the same MIME type.)  Then showing the email
with `-prefer text/plain' would give mhfixmsg's version but the original
would still be there for explicit reference with -part, etc.

Cheers, Ralph.
