The pithy ruminations from Ralph Corderoy on 
<Re: [Nmh-workers] Nabbing /usr/bin Space.> were:
=> Hi Mark,
=> > Do you mean /usr/bin/mh as a sub-directory?
=> No, a new executable, e.g. `mh foo', `mh bar'.

OK, got it.

=> > I'd think that "unpackf" (or "burstmmdf") might be better off in
=> > /usr/libexec/nmh.  
=> Seems off to bury a command a user would want to run off-PATH over
=> there?

Not really, if:
        /usr/bin/nmh mmdfunburst 

really does

Wasn't your intention to stop polluting /usr/bin with more
executables...otherwise, where would you keep 'mmdfunburst'?

Or were you thinking that /usr/bin/nmh would have functionality that's
not available in any other executable, rather than just being a front-end,
and there wouldn't be a stand-alone program 'mmdfunburst'?


        I do like the idea of a command named "*funburst".
