I want it to run when I select the part, either by clicking on the part
icon on the right of the message window, or by picking View|Message
Part|Open As Text.  _Not_ when I simply select the message (which can
happen rather inandvertently if reading multiple messages via Space).
At that time, I expect to just see the text/plain part if one exists, or
just a bunch of icons for the attachments otherwise.

And I think this is precisely how other attachments work (image, for instance).

Am I asking for too much?
