Hi Oliver,

Thanks!  Seeing they just do a simple rename from ,42.orig back to 42 is
enough.  I can do that manually rather than need the script.  It is
documented, I probably knew but forgot.

    Otherwise if the file argument to mhbuild is the name of a valid
    composition file, and the translation is successful, mhbuild will
    replace the original file with the new MIME message.  It will rename
    the original file to start with the “,” character and end with the
    string “.orig”, e.g., if you are editing the file “draft”, it will
    be renamed to “,draft.orig”.  This allows you to easily recover the
    mhbuild input file.

Cheers, Ralph.
