I realize the best solution is to have the sender change its ways and
emit standards-adhering messages, but in the meanwhile, could VM gain
the ability to assume that the body's encoding style in a message also
applies to the headers? An alternative would be to assume that headers
are 8-bit clean unless RFC 2047-style quoting appears. (Can either be
done on our own with some elisp in the meanwhile, I wonder? I wouldn't
want the message itself modified; just the presentation buffer.)
