I'm not really in favor of this. For one thing, wasn't whether or not to
forward as attachment a preference before? I also like having the ability to
pick and choose which attachments get forwarded when I forward a message.

Seems to me like we should be able to, if forwarding a multipart/alternative
message inline, just not add as attachments any other alternatives to that
part. Is it not that simple?
