Replace on the screen, not changing the content of the mail, right?
That's what I would like to do. The problem is that we have to do this
after the mail is reformated, but there is no valid MIME message after
the rmail-reformat-message call: the message is broken into two parts
by the EOOH marker.
To be able to MIME-parse it, I have to glue the message back and
delete the "simplified" header in between.

If you mean rmail-clear-headers function, then it does not hide headers,
but deletes them.

That's what I'm trying to hear in this discussion.
Can't we just hide header fields instead of creating another "simplified"
header in between of the message and thus braking it?
