Well, that was my point.  Seriously folks, how much time is this worth?
No offense to Norm, but this code has been in place for around a dozen
years at this point with one person having issues (not to discount the
tweaks over the years).  The docs could certainly be better, and it sounds
like that's in process.  Other than that and any bugs that need fixing, I
think that there are better places to put energy.  As the example above
points out, nmh is for people who type commands.  Folks can go elsewhere if
they want to point and click.
