An edge-case issue with @ be it in . ~/ or `mhpath +`
is that it does not allow for multiple concurrent replies.

Scripts should use the not-so-unintuitively named $editalt
to inherit the correct context. Humans will have to live
with @ pointing to the most recent message being replied to;
assuming repl unlinks the first @, and unless editors have
some way of the user accessing environment variables to
determine which file to load**. Both of these points might
be worth documenting?

** M-x getenv^Jeditalt^J
