no. please don't. you should know which program's name to enter.
"mutt" starts mutt, and "neomutt" starts neomutt. feature.

call each program by its name.
that is like root intended it.
as for sharing he configuration files, i do it this way:
$ mkdir -p ~/.mutt ~/.neomutt
so when i start neomutt then it reads its config file
with a "source" command to read the muttrc first.
only then it will do the neomutt specific things.
