I agree.

For years, I have used a separate program I wrote to deal with
replying to MIME messages:
It ain't the most efficient thing, but it works.  And I have
found over time that I've had to use it more frequently, even
for basic messages.

Ideally nmh should do what mha-mhedit basicly does.

Of course, the other big hurdle nmh has is that it is command-line
oriented, limiting those who may choose to use it to more advanced
computer users that appreciate the power and flexibilty the
command-line can provide.

I think the capabilities and maintenance of GUI front-ends to nmh
may be the determining factor if nmh stays around or fades away.
