Of course - right, the text->ps is formatted internally, as part of the
e-mail.  That behaviour could easily be changed.

Do you still want the email headers formatted, or are you using the -N
switch too?

What we really want is a "flexible" way to allow user/admin to specify
exactly which parts of a message (headers, mime parts, certain
attachements).  Do you have any ideas on the best way to do that?  I'm
certainly willing to work an a patch that can implement this type of
stuff - I just haven't figured out how it should look to users.
