I just did (qc-file "cdtb") after sending some mail, and it defaulted
the directory to ".MAIL.". This is non-ideal. I think there ought to
be a "working directory" at all times, and that things like qc-file
should call a version of the filename parser that will default to that
working directory. Defaulting to the working directory should be the
general thing to do; it should be made easy for programs to do this; the
standard function for expanding pathnames should default this way.
Maybe the working directory should be displayed in the who-line (if we
can dig up some room for it).
