While trolling for patches, I was pointed to a problem reported by Robert Elz last October. The order of the arguments "-list" and "-seq" matters, as mentioned in the man page. In other words,
pick -list -seq x and pick -seq x -list do not do the same thing. -seq implicitly means "-nolist -seq", so pick -list -seq x and pick -nolist -seq x do the same thing. Should this be changed, or will it break existing front ends to nmh? My reading of the exmh code is that it will not; it adds -list to the end whenever 'pick' is used. Thanks.
