    Because they may not have configured emacs to send mail.

Emacs does not need any special configuration to send mail.
If the machine can send mail, Emacs can do it.

    My proposal  was to help them cut&paste  the relevant information
    into *their* favorite email tool.

I didn't see that proposal, but they could certainly do this if they
want to.  (Nothing would stop them.)  I don't see that anything
special is needed.

    Ok, my  experience regarding  emacs users is  that only a  few of
    them use it for mail. I can very well be wrong on that point.

Whether they use Emacs for mail on other occasions has no effect.
It is not a relevant issue.

    So  what   about  instrumenting  "autoload"  ?   Or  defining  an
    autoload-obsolete function ?

Sorry, I don't know what that would mean.  I see no need for this
to have any connection with the autoload mechanism.  It will work
just fine in autoloaded files.
