I do not understand this. If you remove mh-e/*.elc, it compiles. If you
just touch mh-e/mh-e.el and compile it fails.

I found that making mh-strip-package-version a macro fixes the error
(which I just checked in). If someone would like to explain why this is
so, I would listen eagerly. Is this fixing the problem, or merely
masking the symptoms?

Color me baffled by the compiler (again).
