I'm trying to write as short as possible (to make less gramar
mistakes =:-)), but sometimes it is too short.

Suppose, you use automimeproc: 1 and you want to include (as a
part of the message) some lines from program source, shell script
or whatever.

You can type
:r whatever (or copy by mouse)
and do not have to edit (and remember to edit) included part to escape 
leading #.

As the additional directive, user doesn't have to know about it
unless he needs it.
