i'll get in touch with brent welch about updating that version and link
on his site.

exmh-workers and exmh-users are very low volume lists, but worth
subscribing to.

and so am i (the debian maintainer of both exmh and nmh).

that's been the way exmh tunes and adjusts things before installation
for decades. it's not awesome.
