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
        pick -seq x -list

do not do the same thing.  -seq implicitly means "-nolist -seq", so

        pick -list -seq x
        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.
