No.  Emacs is not a clone of vi.  It doesn't support passing the mode on
the command line in the same way.  That's what I was trying to say with
my post.

The closest analogue would be something like

emacs --file %s --funcall claws-external-mode

but there are complications, particularly when one uses the emacs
server.  That's why I prefer the local variables trick instead.

Besides, claws-external-mode is something I wrote and haven't shared
with anyone (yet).

In summary, I don't think this is something that should be preset by
Claws.  There are too many different users, editors, and options.

Please *no* private copies of mailing list or newsgroup messages.
