The difference is that we're forcing the users to a single value now
that we can't ever change again. So if, for instance, the Linux people
pull themselves together and create a proper API for querying how mail
is supposed to be sent out, this is something that few Emacs users will
be using, since if we change the default in Emacs 26.1 to
`send-mail-using-the-clever-new-linux-api', they'll never see it.
