Yes, I know how to convert; I have an elisp function named ^m that does this,
but it's an annoyance and it is unknown how many other users will encounter
this. Again, I assert that if Emacs created rmail files with ^m in them, then 
Emacs should repair them, especially if Emacs forces mbox conversion.
