Thanks.  So this is the solution for this buffer (and for any other
buffer whose paragraphs should always have the left-to-right base
direction, i.e. their lines should always start at the left margin of
the window).

As mew is not part of Emacs (I think), what would be the best way of
achieving this effect?  I'd prefer not to ask users to do that
manually, if that can be avoided.  Does this buffer have a fixed name
we can rely upon?

Chong, Stefan: how about having a (customizable) list of buffer names
which should by default have left-to-right paragraph direction?  Would
this be a reasonable solution?  We could add buffer names to this list
as we discover more such cases.
