few people have NOT built nmh with mh-e support so I doubt that it is

#ifdefs so that mh-e support is always included in nmh.  Comments?

I'd like to audit them and see if we actually use them (we being mh-e developers).  Features that are actually used should always be enabled *and* documented.

i was going to say the same. brian reid wrote the original mhe, for which these features were added. someone else wrote the current gnu-emacs "mh-e" package, which shares no code with brian's original, and may not be using these options.

so i'm +1 to jch above: whatever is used should remain, should be the default, and should be documented; whatever is not used (which i think may be 100% of it) should be removed.
