I guess it works on other systems, too?  If sendmail can't be found,

I'm not sure if the feature freeze would prevent this change from
being made, but I'm sending this as a reminder in case you've
forgotten about it.

I don't think anybody had any comments to make.  :-)

How common is it that non-Windows people have a client set up (reachable
via mailclient) that can send mail?

I do (under Cygwin). If I understand mailclient correctly, all that's required is that browse-url be able to handle a mailto link. So I would guess that a lot of people have a client set up whether they know it or not.
