I didn't follow the discussion, but I think rms wants gnus-dired to be
capable of (optionally) working without the rest of Gnus.

That's probably fine, if the message says something like:
"You must run Gnus, or customize `gnus-dired-mail-mode', first"

Or, how about something like changing the default value of
gnus-dired-mail-mode to something like:

(if (featurep 'gnus) 'gnus-user-agent

(It's possible none of this makes sense, I'm not familiar with how
this works...)
