Not the POP source code, the fact that we build and install movemail

Ah, that wasn't clear from your statement cited above. In <http://bugs.gnu.org/26102#30> I proposed one patch to remove the unencrypted POP3 source code from movemail, and another patch to add --with-movemail. Your statement vetoed the first and changed the second so that --with-movemail was the default. But neither patch made --without-pop the default; that was a third proposal I made later, a proposal that you did not respond to but merely reverted when it was eventually installed.

I'm writing all this because I don't want people to be left with the misimpression that I deliberately installed a patch that you had specifically asked not to be installed. That is not what happened.
