I'm trying to prepare a small cosmetic patch to fix up a couple of
things I find myself manually fixing up:

1. "./NEWS". I considered replacing this with the basename of the NEWS
file, but in fact it seems to me it's better to use the literal "NEWS"
since that makes more sense in the email. What do you think?

2. In the email subject, better use $package_name $curr_version than

I would already have sent this patch, but there's another problem: I
use whitespace-mode, and it stumbles because, although I've now set
indent-tabs-mode to t in the file announce-gen (this will be part of
my patch), it turns out that the file is neither one thing nor the
other, since although it mostly uses tabs, it doesn't use tabs in the
usage message, but spaces. Is there some even-more-magic setting I can
use which will make whitespace-mode happy to replace spaces with tabs
in parts of the file but not in other parts, or should I add another
file-local setting to turn it off?
