Yes, great.  Would make me happy without changing the default for
existing content users.  Might I suggest that the default ~/.mh_profile
for new users, if there is such a thing, have it turned on so they avoid
the trap until they're au fait enough to turn it off.  Else they'll
learn by being burnt.

Cheers, Ralph.
