  okay. That would work for me.
  The work would still be there to essentially:
      a) rip out everything else.
      b) adjust packages such that nullmailer/ssmtp is a dependancy.
      c) provide an interface to collect the user's various
         relay authentication tokens and configure said mailer.

  nmh is the swiss-army knife of mail user agents.

  We have several graphical MUAs that sit on top of it, and I'd like to
see more of them, not fewer.  I do not want thunderbird and all the like
to have to reinvent everything.
