I've had -m in my scripts for a while (last time someone asked me to
make the change, I guess), but it wasn't effective, because my .muttrc
has 'set pipe_decode' enabled, which doesn't only decode the output, but
also throws away most headers.

I seem to remember that this was necessary at some point because
otherwise some mails just wouldn't apply. Maybe 'git am' works better
these days and can actually parse the mails that used to give me
problems. I'll give it a try and disable pipe_decode.
