        Would your proposal not result in a loop?

Yes, that can currently happen with the default on Windows and Mac too. But the fact that obviously experienced users who have set Emacs as their default mail client end up with a loop if they don't change the default configuration should not prevent us from making a change that benefits less experienced users who currently experience a broken mail configuration and may not have the knowledge to configure their way out of it.

Ask the user whether to use the system default mail program?
