I understand, and yet it's such a powerful way to extend the features of nmh
without requiring core changes e.g; the supplemental MIME storage I'm using.

Maddening as the sequence clash is, there's a workaround (though who knows
when it might break, since it's not clear why I should work... my guess is it's
akin to funky scoping like local $foo = $foo in perl). The thing that makes
the least sense to me is that mark gives different results than cat, despite
being run from the same environment/situation.

P.S. It would still be useful to have environment variables exposed,
and del-hook ought to let the child know if -unlink was used e.g;
by setting the CMD to rmm-unlink instead of rmm
