40 out of how many?

Anyway, Rmail is about reading mail, not about reading news groups.
rmail-reply uses the encoding of the message replied to for setting
the encoding of the reply.  This "feature" makes me reply with a
windows-12xx encoding to someone whose sole "fault" is that she has
Latin-X characters in her name, which is RFC-2047 encoded in the From:
header.  This is ugly and unnecessary.  Emacs should not do this
unless the problematic characters are really present in the message.

I guess I will simply customize away mm-charset-override-alist, if no
one shares these concerns.
