I have tried contributing enhancements (the same ones) to both projects,
and in the end I had to give up in the case of mutt and I maintained
them as private patches for a while.  Then I learned about neomutt
(seriously, I didn't know about it!) and they were accepted right away,
after a style pass.

mutt places very large weight on backward compatibility (and when a
troglodyte like me says this, it really means something!)  I don't mean
it as a value judgment, just pointing out there is a difference.
