Hmmm. I suppose I could make (cpio-mode) a function instead of a mode,
but that seems to be somehow inappropriate. It would avoid the bug of
being a misbehaving major mode, but . . . well . . . . I do suppose
there could be a legitimate style issue here.
I think I'll leave it the way it is and wait to see if anyone screams.
Thanks for taking the time to think about this. :-)
