i am +1 to this. but i exchange a lot of MIME with people all day long,
in a way that shell level tools can't help me. so i've moved to IMAP and
i've converted a small subset of my MH folders to "Maildir" format.

what this means to me is that if i can't figure out what someone
intended or i need to run grep, i have to fight like hell to figure out
which file in the Maildir swamp contains the message that my mail reader
isn't parsing correctly. until i can run 'emacs' on that file i don't
really know what's going on.

imagine my relief if i could run pick and mhpath, either on the same
server where my imap server runs (if i want to see a local file system
path name) or on my laptop (if i want to see an IMAP url and perhaps a
local copy of the file.)

using thunderbird helps me a tiny bit more than it hurts me, but it
hurts quite a bit. i want my MH tools back.
