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

I'm glad to hear people are working on reading in old no-conversion
files.  I don't know whether it works; I have not tried it.  I am just
finding out the situation.

    I hope `eliminate' doesn't mean you won't be able to read it any more.

We will have a conversion program.

    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?

I don't know, and that is a good question.  I did not work on that
aspect of Rmail before, and I am not sure what to do about it now.
We might want to save these files normally in emacs-mule encoding,
or maybe we would want to decode each message individually when
displaying it.  address@hidden is the person doing it.
