I didn't expect that: I thought that a username and password were
always required here.

If that argument is changed to "1", it breaks Valdis's use case.
I think that the nmh_get_credentials() call needs to move back
to sm_get_pass(). We might want to do that with inc and msgchk,

My read of the code was that post did behave differently than
inc and msgchk. See commit 52a236230220, the diffs of the inc.c
and msgchk.c are straightforward.
