Okay, that's my dumb question for the month. I've gotten so used to
hacking Python files to do everything I don't think of the obvious.

One list sends two and three digests a day, and it's never been
within 5 Kb of the limit. I assume it sends a digest when it receives a
post that would put it over. I've not tracked it to see if in each case
the next post would have put it over. May just be coincidence.
