automatic base64 conversion for rmail?

I have not the time to investigate the exact cause of this problem
further, nor will I be able to investigate on it for at least a week,

Apperently RMAIL converts base64 messages automatically, but does not
changes the Content-Transfer-Encoding header accordingly.

To reproduce:
- download http://fly.isti.cnr.it/tmp/base54.mbox (I am appending it to
  the end of this mail, but I am not sure it will arrive intact)
- emacs -Q
- C-u M-x rmail RET base64.mbox RET

You can read the mail without problems, while with Emacs 21 you could
only see the base64-encoded message.  This is nice and good, but the
decoded message keeps its
 Content-transfer-encoding: base64
header intact.  This header should be changed to
 Content-transfer-encoding: 8bit

This is important because I have a hook installed which does decoding
(so I could read that message even on Emacs21), and now it, correctly,
gives an error because the headers do not reflect the mail contents.
