Re: Rmail changes for Emacs 22

    The current Rmail won't work properly in Emacs 22 since no-conversion
    means something different, i.e. a different internal encoding.

Does Emacs 22 mean the Unicode Emacs?

My understanding is that no-conversion still means "use the internal
multibyte rep", but since the internal rep of most characters has
changed, the actual file contents will be different.  Are you saying
the same thing?

Is there any way to read a file into the Unicode Emacs
that was written using no-conversion in the current Emacs?

    Here's a suggestion.  I did it ages ago and don't remember whether I
    actually tested it.

Which branch is this change proposed for?  The Unicode Emacs branch?
The RC branch?  The current HEAD?

Please note that a major change in Rmail is being developed:
we are going to eliminate Babyl format and use Inbox format.
I expect this to be installed by the time the Unicode branch
is ready for release.
