Or add the welcome to the output of install-mh(1)?  Its output is
brief enough now that it shouldn't be lost.  Question is whether new
users use install-mh, though if they don't, they probably don't need
a welcome.

I do have some issues with install-mh, such as -check only looks for
~/.mh_profile (or $MH if set), but I don't think that's relevant.
