It is also decoded into the Emacs internal representation of
characters, so you don't have the original message anyway (unless it's
pure ASCII).

That's why in the past discussions of this issue someone suggested to
redesign RMAIL along the lines of Gnus: leave the original message
alone, and produce the reformatted one in a separate buffer.  This is
actually the main reason I asked Alexander to take this discussion
here.  However, it sounds like Alexander has no intent to follow Gnus,
and no one else raised that problem either (until now).
