David was nice enough to not mention that the original bug was mine; sorry
about that!

You know, I have no idea why there is both editalt and mhaltmsg; from
looking at the documentation, maybe mhaltmsg is just for whatnowproc?
It looks like it's been that way for 20 years at least.

Hm.  Looking at things further .... right now "mhaltmsg" is designed
to be used by things like "send" (it uses it when doing "dist").  So I
guess the short answer is "editalt" is just for external programs (nmh
does nothing with it other than set it) where mhaltmsg is designed to be
used by whatnow/send/whom.
