you don't.  this is how it *should* be.

and that's exactly my point:
you should not have to apply another script for this,
but simply change the source code once and for all so that
everyone can simply get these info with *one* *simple* command
which simply takes the first line of output.  easy, right?

so for my next build at the weekend
i'd really like to see it this way:

  $ neomutt -v | head -1
