description:
Setting the headers breaks e-mail attachments.  Marshal(1) already
sets the proper content-type and content-transfer-encoding based on if
there is a codepoint above 0x7f--if we want to change the default from
Latin-1, that's where the fix should be.  Without this fix, the wrong
content-type and content-transfer-encoding is set for multipart
messages, and therefore 'Include:' or 'Attach:' instructions will send
malformed e-mail.
