Actually it does. Mark the articles using '#', then press ':'.  It seems
to use an embeded version of uudeview which doesn't deal properly with
yEnc encoded and MIME encoded material though. Running the standalone
uudeview on the resulting file with the -s and -i flags fixes that 

Pan does pretty well on the "one step" department, except for graphic
files which have been marked as appplication/octect-stream. I think 
you can save the decoded file, but Pan won't display them.
