Re: improve rmail's MIME handling

It's ok to enable mime handling in Rmail by default if it is done in a
convenient way.  A convenient way is one that helps without forcing
itself on you, without switching buffers unless you request it.
It has to let you read textual attachments in the message
buffer itself.

It should not try to decode the non-textual attachments until you ask
for specific ones.

I would suggest making the non-textual attachments invisible, showing
only their header lines.  If you want to see the contents of one, you
type v on it.
