Me neither.  I was hoping a caller that bothered to check for a non-NULL
return would explain but didn't notice one.  Is JLR still around?

I sent it as

    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

They're in my ~/mail/components and work OK until I `forw -mime' or
similar.  Unfortunately, Mailman thinks it knows better.

Any chance we can alter the nmh lists to use the "-- ", note the space,
start of a signature indicator rather than "___...".
