This was done in the 23.1 release, right?  Because I was surprised
that Emacs was trying to launch F'Fox to send email on my win32
machine when I was using gnus for quite sometime.  I think I read the
NEWS file and the manual to figure out what to do next.  Though it did
take some time for me to figure it out.

what about checking whether there's a .gnus file, or a VM,
Mews/rmail(and other Emacs only mail client) dot file and not doing
anything in such a case?  Yes, I understand, users can name their dot
files arbitrarily but since we are trying defaults....
