You've goaded me into adding:

application/pdf; /usr/bin/pdftohtml -q -stdout '%s' | w3m -dump -cols 72 -T text/html; copiousoutput
application/msword; /usr/bin/catdoc -ab '%s'; copiousoutput

... as well.  After all, if we're going to lose the battle, we may
as well lose the war while we're at it ...
