In Emacs 21.3, Text mode did not override the default value of
require-final-newline. In current CVS, it does via
mode-require-final-newline. Is there a reason for that?
I don't remember the reason, but I remember there was one.
I think that specific point was discussed in this list
a few months ago.
Also, nil _is_ a valid value for mode-require-final-newline. But the
docstring is not very explicit about that and you can not set it to
nil via Custom. If you set it to nil outside Custom, Custom will
falsely describe the value as `ask', which is a bug.
I will fix that.
Would it be good
to have the docstring mention this explicitly and allow it to be set
to nil via Custom with proper warning of the involved dangers
I don't know how to make Custom issue warnings.
