  I was not aware of that convention. It certainly isn't in the Emacs
  Lisp Coding Conventions. Where is this documented?

  I include the RCS keyword because it adds a lot of useful information.
  The gratuitous diffs are pesky indeed. However, it would be better to
  fix the tools so that these diffs aren't generated.

  Nonetheless, I notice that most (but not all) of the lisp packages do
  not have the Id keyword, so I'll go with the flow and remove the
  keywords from the MH-E package.

  Is this important enough to take the time to punch out a patch release
  now, or can it wait a month until our next regular release?
