We've mh-e people stand up, and Chris and myself can probably handle any
breakage in exmh - but there's one caveat:  If you make a change that modifies
the line-mode flags (or default values for same) please speak up so us
maintainers of layered stuff know something happened. It's really easy to deal
with a mail that says "I just commited a change that adds a new flag -foobar to
'inc' - please test".  It's a lot harder to troubleshoot 3 weeks later. ;)

Is it possible to gate CVS commit messages to this list, or start an nmh-commits
list for same?  Then if people use sane messages in their 'cvs commit',
all the rest is easy once it's set up. ;)
