Yeah, I took a look at GNU Mailutils a while back (mainly to see how express
certain things in the bindings). Confusingly, in Debian/Ubuntu, mu has a
package called "maildir-utils" (I guess "mu" is too short..), so there are two
packages "mailutils" and "maildir-utils"...

I do not really see an easy way to combine GNU Mailutils and mu; but it would
be interesting to hear what cool things people have written using the former,
and see if I could support the same with mu's bindings.
