The available mail file formats for a host are determined
by the return value of the (flavors) generic function
ZWEI:NATIVE-MAIL-FILE-FORMATS. The flavor that this
needs to live on is called FS:UNIX-MAILBOX-PATHNAME-MIXIN.
It returns a list of mail buffer flavors. In addition to
the list it presently returns (which is constant), it needs
to return ZWEI:RMAIL-BUFFER.
This will cause it to use ITS EMACS RMAIL format, which I don't think is
the same as GNU Emacs RMAIL format.
Duh, ages ago, probably with an earlier, pre-GNU Unix Emacs,
Rmail's files were just Rmail files. But now that you mention
it, it looks to me like Rmail files are now really BABYL files,
misnamed. It looks to me like you should just use Babyl, unless
you're using some other Rmail.
