There's the one that prompted this report:

emacs -Q
C-u M-x rmail RET foo RET  ; foo is a Babyl file with > 1 message

Now you have an mbox file, no prompting.

If you're asking if I want to write a patch, then sorry, no.

Aborting no longer prompts, but it marks the message as edited, which
is incorrect.

Also, aborting an edit now always marks the Rmail buffer as unmodified
(even if the initial Rmail file was mbox). It should restore the
pre-edit modification status.
