As far as I can tell, the mm-* version is useful for handling stuff lke
"UTF-8" as the charset argument (which might be useful if we extract it
from the "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8" header).  If passing
'utf-8, then it's just the same as calling decode-coding-string.

For a default if we don't find a charset header, I guess `undecided'
would make more sense, right?  After all, Emacs already has the coding
detection machinery, may as well use it.
