whoa.  i _am_ learning things today.  that's _great_!  i had no
idea you could do that.  this increases the usefulness of
sequences tenfold.  thanks!

and, now that i've (re?)read the mh-sequences(5) man page, i also
know about 

    Previous-Sequence:  pseq

which solves my other long-standing annoyance about mh sequences:
if i do "show unseen" i can't then do "rmm unseen", because, of
course, they're no longer unseen.  but i can now do "rmm pseq"
and it works just like i wanted.

hey jerry, you know, you should really consider writing a book about
all this...  ;-)
