Yes, saving the article saves the raw article, not trn's interpretation
of the article -- this is the best thing to do, and preserves the
original poster's intent (since we save exactly what they sent).  I
glanced a bit at the code, and I don't believe that there's a way to get
the save command to save trn's interpretation of the article, nor to ask
'e'xtract to save a text article, so it looks like you'd have to use
something like munpack on the saved file to decode it again.
