You rejected multi-mode before, but I can't remember the details.
Perhaps it was that there was supposed to be a feature freeze, though
there clearly wasn't.  multi-mode isn't ideal, and probably could use
support elsewhere in Emacs, but I hoped it would go in so that people
would try it and address the issues.

I don't know what your criteria are for installation, or what you mean
by `the release'.  The encryption code works for what I needed.
However, you've installed different encryption stuff I don't
understand in allout.  That wouldn't run and I don't understand why
such a facility is (just) going into something which uses the obsolete
selective display.

I guess function-arity is correct in the development codebase, but a
lot has broken elsewhere and maybe it isn't actually right now.

I wasn't expecting any of this to be used, but I wanted to avoid
people wasting time doing the same as I had.
