Re: default mode for email drafts

    I visited with C-x C-f a file whose file-name is an integer and whose
    immediate directory is named "drafts", and to my surprise I found
    myself in mh-letter-mode.  I was surprised because I not only don't
    use mh-e but I don't even have MH installed on my system.  I use Gnus
    to read and send email messages, and Gnus has a special group for
    drafts, and of course visiting a draft within Gnus DTRT. The problem
    is that Gnus uses a file structure for drafts that matches the regexp
    which auto-mode-alist associates exclusively with mh-letter-mode,
    which takes effect when visiting drafts outside of Gnus.

I think that Gnus should change the file name so that mh-e won't
be triggered.  Is there any obstacle to this?

                                                              I would
    guess that mh-e also a mechanism for visiting drafts in the
    appropriate mode.  So does this association really have to forced for
    C-x C-f?

It ought to be.  Why should we choose to make one mode work well or
the other?  We can make both work well.
