Hi all,

Over the last few months we've been sorting out a lot of NeoMutt
functions.  We've moved all of the 'utility' functions, that don't
have any dependencies, and put them in 'libmutt'.

The functions are grouped by type:
    base64, buffer, date, debug, exit, file, hash, list,
    mapping, mbyte, md5, memory, message, sha1, string

After moving them, we've made sure they're all documented:


The final step was to sort out the naming.  Every function is now of the
form: mutt_TYPE_DESC, where TYPE is from the list above.

As with all BIG changes, all the branches in the neomutt repo and all
the Pull Requests will be 'upgraded' for free :-)  I'll start tonight.

If you have some work that isn't public yet, you can rename the
functions using this sed script:



    find . -type f -name '*.[ch]' | xargs sed -i -f rename-lib.sed

If you have any questions or problems, let me know.
