Upstream Mutt considers all text/* as human readable, when in fact most text/*
are not (they are html/xml/css/cvs/javascript...)

Neomutt considers only text/plain as human readable by default.

To consider more text/XXXX as human readable, you can add in your mailcap:

  text/x-diff; cat '%s'; copiousoutput;
  text/x-patch; cat '%s'; copiousoutput;

It's not the first times I see this question, so I open an issue [1] to improve
the documentation.
