FWIW, it seems that what other front-ends do is assume the draft is
"cur" in the draft folder (exmh) or they try to manipulate the component
file directly (MH-E, but that causes problems and they had to change
it).  The -build switch was put into place for "comp" just for those
front-ends, and I believe -build already has been in repl for a while

It's not documented, unfortunately, but whatnow is called with the "mhdraft"
environment variable pointed to the correct filename.
