To be fair, I think there was some chance that my fixes for good MH support
in Claws-Mail would have been adopted.  But yeah, all my interactions about
enhancements seemed to have a "huh? you're a wacko hippie" understone.

My requirements where (are!) good MH support, complete configurable GTK+
key-bindings and "Exmh-style inc via procmail + rcvstore".  I would have
had to add them myself.  And that coding would have been more painful than
writing MH-V, which is in essence Exmh rewritten in perl curses.

Of course, in the end, Claws-Mail will never perform extremely well over
9600 baud or on an Android phone.
