If we have different mail formats and let people pick between them, the
headers would be the same (except for Content-Type, which can be rewritten
easily anyway) but the body might be different.

For example, the plain ASCII mail like goes out currently...
or for our numerous ircbots and other stuff that get email, maybe an XML
format.  For those people who have mail programs that can view HTML mail
decently, an HTML format with the pretty bug activity chart on it.  etc.
