Is libmutt really a separate package? I was under the impression that
Stuart just took most of the mutt source tree, patched it, and added it
to Balsa. If this is not the case, all you *should* have to do is replace
the source in balsa/libmutt with the new stuff.

This is an interesting thing... my coding style, for instance, is very
different than most in Balsa. IMHO unless we find one style particularly
unreadable keeping to a consistent style is not a big deal.

I've looked over your code quickly and the style looks fine to me.

Good... the more the merrier.
