That's my idea as well: try to use the -*-rmail-*- tag.
It might even be possible to place it on the first ("From ") line.
It probably means to lose/garble that first line's info, so we may want
to first copy that info into an "Envelope-From:" header.

Another issue is to make sure those files get opened into a unibyte
buffer (i.e. use a `binary' coding-system).  So maybe the tag should
really be -*-mode:rmail;coding:binary-*-.
