Aye, I did too ... this is why I'd like to come back! :)

Yes, I'd like to be able to decide on my own whether to invoke the
external editor or not.
The Use Case is something like the following:
Is HTML needed to Reply or to make the message clear?
o If yes, edit in HTML.
o If no, is it a quick text email and/or requires no shell info,
o If yes, stay in Compose
o If no, use the External Editor

Unfortunately the setting is global and it's either on or off. When
it's on and you mouse into the text box of a Compose window, the
configured external editor is fork'd.

Just for fun, I created an IMAP account and downloaded a whack of
email (I have oodles). The default memory for mysql was a bit low and
I have tons of memory on my box so I boosted it.
As this is for play, I also set the flusing of the log buffer to a
more relaxed value. It was set to /2/ but based on the results of
some benchmarks published, I set it to /0/:
Just for grins, I'm going to try to trigger a large DELETE event but
before I do so, I'm going to try to disable logging globally (I hope I
have the right incantation):
mysql --socket=.... (the /socket/ value from /ps -ef|fgrep mysql/)

Unfortunately, the above doesn't quite work (yet!) because the setting
only takes for new DB connections. I'm thinking of setting up a logon
trigger which would set it ... but I shouldn't burn too much time here

:) ... I need to log some of the SQL being sent and I'll have a peak.
