Ohkay ..... I really read it opposite ;)

Ah. .. Dude, I always used to do that kind of R&D. That led me to
Gentoo, I built gentoo with different configurations on same machine
(I guess 12 times). At one time, I know the entire Gentoo Handbook  by
heart. I could just write it myself. I have even built SOURCEMAGE and
Lunar too. Yeah, DragonFlyBSD too :) . These days I use Arch and no
Desktop of course. I use GUI all the time but that is through tiling
Window Manager called StumpWM, which I came to know about from
ratpoison. Have even configured Fvwm too (and half a dozen other WMs)
by hand written scripts.

I will stick to no gmime for now.
