How can I view alternate mime content in wanderlust ?

All my mails are coming through as the HTML version, and sometimes I'd rather see the plain text version, even though I don't want to lose the ability to see HTML version altogether.

I have (in ~/.wl) :

(setq mime-view-type-subtype-score-alist
  '(((text . plain) . 4)
    ((text . enriched) . 3)
    ((text . html) . 2)
    ((text . richtext) . 1)))

to set the default priorities (I like plain text better, but just change the values if you want html most of the time).

Then, when I want to see the alternate version, I display all the message parts with (in summary buffer)

C-c m runs the command wl-summary-toggle-mime-buttons

Which display as [1 <text/plain; UTF-8 (7bit)>] and [2 <text/html; UTF-8 (quoted-printable)>]

Jumping to the message buffer (j), and putting cursor on the appropriate button,

C-c C-t C-c runs the command mime-preview-toggle-content

which toggles display of that particular part.
