The loaddefs.el definitions are the entry points into MH-E and these
(few) definitions should be the only ones from MH-E loaded initially.
Once MH-E is loaded, the definitions in mh-loaddefs.el are loaded for
the support functions. The only trouble that it would cause to load the
mh-loaddefs.el prematurely is to make it difficult for the new user to
decide which of the hundreds of functions to choose. You shouldn't have
to worry about mh-loaddefs.el unless you changed the loading procedure
to load */*loaddefs.el when creating the Emacs image. You haven't done
that, have you?
