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. -- Please don't Cc: me privately on mailing lists and Usenet, if you also post the followup to the list or newsgroup.
