    The problem is that I have to communicate this information in my call to
    `format-decode'.  Currently we have no way to distinguish cases (2) and
    (3) both have `visit-flag' nil.

In case 2, `insert-file-contents' can turn off undo around the call to
`format-decode', and make a single undo entry later on.  In case 1,
`insert-file-contents' can turn off undo around the call to
`format-decode', and not make any undo entry later on.

Thus, `format-decode' itself should not do anything special about undo
in any of the three cases.
