So I figured that one out, I think. Before adding it to the wiki, I'd
like a review of the code (attached) from more adept elisp programmers.

I'm particularly surprised that save-excursion doesn't work the way I
expect: when I answer "no" to the question, I go back to the email
buffer, but the point is invariably at the end of the buffer, whereas I
would expect it to be where it was when I send the message. It looks
like something else moves the mark before my hook, but I'm not sure

How else than (error) or (keyboard-quit) am I supposed to abort email
sending? (message-send) uses the latter but it would seem better to use
an actual error message than to just "beep" our way out here..

Other advice? (save-excursion) + (goto-char (point-min)) +
(re-search-forward), is that idiomatic? or is there something more
clever that should be done?
