A big advantage of nmh's code stability is that it provides
a natural place to stop.  Should we consider starting with a
clean slate?  An extensible architecture and modern language
would make enhancements and maintenance much easier.  And
safer, e.g., nmh still uses mktemp because replacement is
just too painful.

Of course, it won't be easy to reach consensus on what
should and should not be in it, what language, whether or
not to use middleware, etc.  But going through that process
should give the gsoc student "more exposure to real-world
software development scenarios."
