I'm afraid there's a little misunderstanding, here.  I believe Richard
is not opposed to this message going to bug-gnu-emacs.  It was Drew Adams
who complained about it.  I think Drew's complaint is that the message is
out-of-context because I didn't include any References: or
In-Reply-To: header.  So he's not opposed to seeing those messages
either, he was just annoyed at this particular one being useless.
