I actually don't care much.  I only rarely use scan at the command line,
when I'm ssh'ed in over the web (w/ shellinabox.)  And I don't think I will
be using scan directly much in the future: it appears MH-V will work well
with ConnectBot on Android with very little effort.  I have picture to prove
it... something like 14 rows of scan and 15 rows of show with 133 columns on
a Captivate Glide.  That said, I kinda need reading glasses AND my bifocal
contacts in to actually READ the mail, but still...  

Btw, anyone have opinions about shellinabox vs the recent (1.1) GateOne
(SSH over HTML)?  I haven't made time to try the latter, and haven't used
shellinabox extensively.

Nmh is going to ship with green on black and GTK+ color themes, right??
OpenLook and/or Motif too?
