      But I made another change, that is,
    the patched set-auto-mode returns the chosen mode.  I think this may be
    useful for programs that want to know which mode a buffer should be in,
    but do not want to set it.

    Yes, passing just t would certainly be clearer.  I thought that having
    always a list would be simpler to use and possibly more flexible, but I
    would certainly make that change if you think it is best.

Please use just t for that meaning, and document why it's useful.
