I grabbed it and installed it on a Fedora 17 system, which had
the few prerequisite packages already installed by some stroke

I don't know that I'd ditch exmh.  How does mh-v handle image
attachments?  I like how exmh displays them automagically.

As soon as I get a minute to wrap an RPM package around the
