You may not have seen the online "MH & nmh" book, Denis.  It explains
stuff like this in detail.  http://www.ics.uci.edu/~mh/book/
(and mirrors, some possibly linked from its out-of-date home page).

I think there can be one "@" link in each directory, can't there, Neil?
So if Denis starts composing draft 1 in directory "foo", then does
"cd bar", he can compose draft 2 there and the "@" will be linked to
the correct message??

By the way, Denis, these "@" links will disappear and will *not* be
re-created if you quit composition (with:  What now? quit) and start
again later (with:  comp -use -draftmessage n).
