As anyone who stopped asking questions long enough to think might uncover,
*my* mailreader doesn't reiterate exactly the same version details in the
comment field as it did in the former product-version token.
User-Agent: Gnus/5.0803 (Gnus v5.8.3) Emacs/20.7
It's this sense of needless waste among Emacs users that has directly lead to
the present ecological nightmare. At least I can say that Reply-To was down to
simply not caring. I do believe you LISP people actually enjoy watching
coastal ports being drowned to feed your bloated Harkonnen-like appetites.
