I specifically did look at the comments, it leads me to believe that
it would strip the html.  I may want to look at the html, but by default
I would like to have text/plain since my mail client (mutt) can't quote
the html in a reply..

I just tested, and indeed, this strips the html and replaces it with text.

It shouldn't be that hard to add the knob to not strip the html.

If I take a stab at this, I wonder would it be worth making the 
setting "Convert HTML To Text = no" take a "= add" parameter or?
