I used Sylpheed briefly years ago, and I was under the impression that
is was the later.  It recognized MH folders, but it did not leverage the
underlying commands for it.  Maybe things have changed since then.

IIRC, I used Sylpheed at the time to deal with encrypted and signed
mail, something MH/nmh does not support directly.
