[Nmh-workers] The function, void admonish (char *what, char *fmt, ...)

It seems to me (it's been decades since I programmed in C) that admonish does 
very little for programmers, except induce them to issue frustratingly 
ambiguous (sometimes dangerously ambiguous) error messages; that directly 
calling advertise would be very little extra trouble and would avoid that 
inducement. I'm not suggesting a wholesale elimination of all 89 present calls 
to admonish. I'm merely suggesting that admonish be deprecated via an 
appropriate comment, in error.c, just above admonish.
