Not too fussed about obscure bugs personally, core functionality seems fine to 
me.  Apologies to those for whom it's not the case.

I'm more concerned about nmh dying.  If people have to compile from source, 
there's a reasonable chance they won't bother.  I'd love to see up-to-date rpm 
and deb packages get included in the common repositories (redhat/ubuntu/etc).  
This would probably be the best way to bring in new users in my opinion.
