Does the patch below give good results? I didn't feel like changing
the default behavior, on account of it being so old, so I added an
option one can customize to get the new behavior.
What about invoking 'o' with a prefix argument -- should it stop
ignoring deleted messages when it looks for the N-1 additional
messages to output to a file, when this option is set non-nil?
