You still can toggle hide/show by typing RET while point is
on that tagline.

By default, inline text/plain, message/rfc822, multipart/*
parts are shown with their bodies except for these cases.

If the top level mesage is text/html, the body is shown.  If
the text/html part is the only text/* part of a
multipart/alternative, the body of text/html is shown.

It's intentional as described in the docstring of

Move point to the next displayed item of the current MIME entity.
A MIME entity has three items; header, tagline, and body. 

But there's no strong reason for that behavior.  I just
thought it's convenient if you can move to a body part by
TAB especially for a message/rfc822 part which is displayed
with header lines.

For "Toggle show/hide" button, perhaps yes.  But for a
button of file saving, one may want to select the displayed
filename by mouse-1.  So mouse-2 is better.  Then, for
consistency, using mouse-2 also for "Toggle show/hide" may
be better.  But, I'm not sure because I uses only TAB and

I'll check the code again for that problem.
