I'm pretty sure that was said, or I wouldn't have taken it for
granted.  Perhaps you could make that decision now.  Code exists on
that basis, e.g. to distinguish byte-compiled files in old and new
internal encodings, and it would be a significant problem if there
wasn't a new major version number reflecting the change in

By the way, I realized that rmail should actually use emacs-mule (not
no-conversion or raw-text, whichever it was).  See NEWS:

  Therefore, Lisp programs that read files which contain the internal
  MULE encoding should use `emacs-mule-unix'.  `no-conversion' is only
  appropriate for reading truly binary files.
