I realize we need 3 default values:

0 - discard
1 - an html-escaped attachment
2 - an html-escaped inline

Unfortunately, #1 and #2 won't escape them the same way.  Pipermail's
doing #2 and Scrubber's doing #1.  Pipermail actually does a better
job here, but I've improved Scrubber's default escaping.  Still looks
ugly as sin to me, so I'd probably just set it to 0 for my lists, but
there you have it.

1 will be the default.
