Yes.  That's what that change is for.  Do you mean it doesn't work?

I hope `eliminate' doesn't mean you won't be able to read it any more.
If you won't be able to write it, then you can eliminate the part of
the change which updates the Babyl version, but you may need to make
similar changes to whatever you end up with.  How will the mbox file
encoding be treated?
