Doesn't look like it.

I could do that if you like. Nick?

It would seem sensible to me to make sure that the next upstream
release includes all the patches currently applied to make the
Debian package. I found that of the 10 patches Debian currently
has 5 are already in 1.1RC4, and I think a few others may be
Debian-specific, so there aren't many of those.

But that rather depends on how quickly we want to get the next
release out of the door and how soon after that we plan to do
the one after :-)

I also think we should fix a problem where mhshow can segfault
on bogus MIME messages:
since it's an easy fix, and might even be an exploitable
security hole if you were really enthusiastic. But I'm biased :-)
