The last command is unlikely to work with any no-trivial email setup
(e.g., if some authentication is needed) without some preliminary
configuration.  So perhaps using --compose is a better recommendation,
assuming the people here already have some email setup for Emacs.

Ideally, VC should have support for this, of course, in which case the
Emacs email setup will be used automatically.
