That's curious.  So what's going on?  If you can use the default Mutt with
some changes to your .muttrc file (sounds cool, I'm about to try it), why
are there patches to 1.3.17i going around?  What do they add?  Why aren't
the Japanese developers getting their stuff put in the main distribution?
I found another page with Japanese documentation.  I don't understand
why these things float about without getting into the main code base.
