Thanks!  That sounds good enough.

My source hack sort of works.  The problem is that the signature is appended
*before* you start composing (so you can actually edit it), so my toggle
idea in the compose menu doesn't really help so much.  

Your solution sounds OK!  However, I can't get it to work!  'G' doesn't
respond!  I don't know why.   'A' (attach message) works. I can see it in
the list of options when I press '?' ("get temporary copy of file")  I could
just attach it as a file via 'a', but then it won't be appended to the message.

Yeah, I had a look there first in the archives, but they didn't seem to
address this particular aspect.  I felt I should ask among my "own"
Debianites before crossing over to them.
