If you're using the Red Hat init script, it does funny things to the
quoting, because it gets passed to "daemon", a shell function that does
it's own quote removal.  I think this will work:

	-x '""'

Don't you love UNIX?

Yeah, it's easier that way. :-)

Seriously, the code does this so that if a non-MIME message is altered,
it becomes a MIME message.  The easiest way is to call smfi_chgheader(),
because that does the Right Thing, regardless of whether the original
message was MIME or not.
