I'm a little confused by this since mh-folder-mode extends

We support Emacs 20.7, 21, and if CVS Emacs is to be 22, then we support
that too. We also support XEmacs 21. See
http://mh-e.sourceforge.net/prereq/, although I notice I need to update
this information with the content of

At least when we no longer support a particular version of Emacs that
the conditional covers, then we can remove the conditional.

Just to be sure I'm understanding correctly, you'd like to see the
following code in mh-e.el:(mh-folder-mode), right?

  (if (or mh-xemacs-flag (< emacs-major-version 22))
    (setq buffer-offer-save t))

Also, is the setting of buffer-offer-save to nil in
mh-utils.el:(mh-find-path) still appropriate?

I'll make the change above and check it into CVS Emacs soon. I'll let
you know if I have additional questions or run into problems.
