 Is nmh 1.7 even released yet? Per http://www.nongnu.org/nmh/, the
latest released version appears to be 1.6, and it's certainly the version
shipping with many Linux distributions. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Fedora 25,
and even Debian testing all have nmh 1.6.

 It's possible to build and install nmh from source, along with exmh,
but it's likely going to be a lot bigger project than just installing
a new version of exmh.

(Especially if nmh is still using the old MH build system, which I will
politely describe as 'intricate'. It's been enough years since I last
had to build MH myself that I'm not sure I could still navigate it,
and I actually have built MH from source a few time, which is probably
not a common experience.)
