>  * Extract all attachments
>  * Open message with mutt (or any external application that can open an mbox)
>  * More proper UTF-8 handling
>  * Configurable key mappings
>  * Much simpler, cleaner, beautiful, and extensible code (only 600 lines!)

In case anybody is interested, here's a screencast showing some of the
features :)
