Users who have customized send-mail-function independently, prior to
Emacs 24, would encounter the same problem.  In the event, it woud be
more reliable to hard code a check into the mail-sending functions,
similar to what we did in compose-mail when switching from mail-mode to
message-mode as the default mail user agent.
