Yeah, that was the plan ... and removing this wouldn't change this.  I
guess I wasn't clear ... I want to remove the draft_from flag in mts.conf
(and from autoconf) and make it happen always, because that would simplify
the code greatly.  In short, draft_from would always be turned on; there
would be no option to turn it off.  I gather you're okay with this?
