Right.  MMDF mail spool files are the normal (headers, blank line,
body), and instead of a "Fromā£" line header and blank line tail, the
head and tail match, both being "^A^A^A^A\n".  This means emails are
separated by two lines of Ctrl-As.

I'm only after axing the run-time tailoring of the delimiters through
mts.conf(5).  The values would instead be fixed at compile time and MMDF
spool files still handled "as well as now".  :-)

Cheers, Ralph.
