Hm, I guess I knew about this, and "-use" IS in the man page, but it doesn't
explain what happens when you have a draft folder.  (If you don't have one
then "-use" will ise the draft file).  The comp(1) man page refers to
mh-draft(5) and that DOES explain how -use works.  I am unsure if more
detail should be put into comp(1); thoughts?

And sigh, the handling around the draft file vs a draft folder is a
confusing mess.  In a perfect world I'd just switch everything to draft
folders and toss draft file handling in the trash can.
