      In any case, surely this check would be optional.

   I hope not, then it makes rmail not usable for most users.

   What is wrong with using real local variables?  Either by adding it to
   the first message, or always adding "-*- rmail -*-" to X-RMAIL-...?
   That way a user could disable rmail explictly for a file, or enable it
   by adding -*- rmail -*- to it.  This would then work exactly as it did
   for RMAIL/BABYL.  Without adding specifc rmail hacks to other parts of

I like this approach.
