Re: [Patch] Improve replying to html-only messages

attached is a little patch which improves replying to html-only messages containing national characters.  It 
turns out that html2markdown reliably converts such characters to utf-8 only if an extra command line option 
is given.  As we check for a “zoo” of conversion tools, the configure script verifies that the selected one 
does actually accept the extra option.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how the change should be added to the meson build, so it would be great if 
someone could have a look at it.

O.k., this seems to be a little complex, as I did not find a way to simply create and erase a file from 
meson.  The recommended (?) way seems to be writing a shell script for that purpose…  not really portable!  
Anyone knows a better way?

The meson part is then simple.  Attached is patch which shall go on top of the first one, and /should/ detect 
if the extra command line option is accepted.  Unfortunately, I can not build the result, as Ninja is too old 
on Ubuntu LTS.
