This is very true, but.

I'm only using a tiny part of all that code.  In particular, _NONE_ of
the network protocols: I download mail over ssh then read it locally
from my disk, and I send by shelling out /usr/sbin/sendmail whatever
that happens to point to.  Also, I only use Maildir and none of the
other mailbox formats.

Given that, maybe I can be excused for wondering if writing a new client
from scratch, restricted to this narrow use case, might be viable (and I
mean I do the work, of course).

Please don't Cc: me privately on mailing lists and Usenet,
if you also post the followup to the list or newsgroup.
