...so maybe try 1.0pre4 at http://www.hep.wisc.edu/~rader/mh-v/

I've processed 1800-some messages with it "in production" and it's taking shape
nicely.  There're about 75 commands that work--everything envisioned need 
folder add/delete, find, filter/pick and global searches (mairix + matches 


But... there's still no ./configure, no (pseudo) scrollbars and there's bugs WRT
hyperlinks (broken for linewrapped and can't have to 2nd when there's dups on
the screen.)

Close: folders -fast > ~/Mail/.folders

But really the vision is to set it up once, with the very inactive folders
not listed,  so as to keep the folders listing and going to next unseen msg
(when not in the current folder) quick.   And then ":mkf" ":rmf" will update
