It's easier to not pollute it in the first place, and use Nmh- going

And messages used to have a couple of handfuls of header lines. Now
they're 3 to 4 (of my) screenfulls, and some have names like X-AOL-IP,
x-forefront-antispam-report, X-GMAIL-LABELS, X-GMAIL-THRID, and
X-GMAIL-MSGID. So I don't buy your point about prior art. At all.
