[neomutt-devel] PATCHES considered harmful

I look at the output of 'mutt -v' far too often. There's so much
information there, but so little that I want to read.
I decided that I'd like to abbreviate the list of PATCHES -- if I
reduced each line to a single word (or two), then I could fold the list
onto a couple of lines.
Then I thought some more. Hang on, they aren't even patches any more.
Perhaps we should just rely on the +INCLUDED or -EXCLUDED list.
But then it struck me. Why does the PATCHES file exist?
It's very presence *encourages* people to fork mutt!
I think we should remove the file completely.
What do you think?

PS In the beginning, I scoured the internet for mutt patches and I
brought them all together. I'd like a volunteer to seek out new
patches and invite people into our family.
