We will have to implement them in Gnus if those arguments are
really required, although I think it doesn't solve the problem
that `sendmail-user-agent' overrides an existing *mail* buffer.

IMHO, implementing SWITCH-FUNCTION is regression.  Because, in
the case that `mail-user-agent' is `gnus-user-agent', we can use
the `gnus-buffer-configuration' feature to customize how to pop
to a mail buffer up variously.  The valid choices include splitting
a window, making a new frame, etc.  For CONTINUE, it is hard to me
to imagine the situation where I want to use an existing *mail*
buffer in order to compose a new mail.  Anyway, that Gnus users
set `mail-user-agent' to `gnus-user-agent' is the best, I think.
