Rather than risk irreversible injury to my 81 year old brain, trying to
understand what q-p means and what buildmimeproc does, I will revert.

But there is a small problem. My standard editor width is not 78 columns, but 80
columns. So I will have to introduce an option into my editor to make the window
width 78 columns (actually, I'll make it 77 columns to have a bit of slop). I
wonder what I should name that option. Said differently where and how did you 
that number,78 columns? I suppose it's some kind of standard?
