MVC program that you might read about in a book.

Lua was a lovely idea, but implemented before its time.
It was able to set variables and run commands at a global level, but
not much else.
However, recently, we've been breaking up the Index, Pager and Compose.
Each one now has a set of separate C functions that perform work on some
With a bit of work, Lua would be able to perform NeoMutt functions in
