I would also like that for the cases where I want to use show.
I use mh-e, and I mostly have things configured right:
  1) use text/plain if it exists.
  2) format text/html is no text/plain
  (3) but often text/plain is bullshit-pseudo-HTML and you need to avoid it.

The additional problem is that reply yanks text from formatted text/html
rather than text/plain.  The good HTML formatters in mh-e (Emacs) are slow,
and the fast ones do a poor job. I would rather show did things and mh-e used
that, but too many moving parts.
