Right - start coding.  Maybe you could rewrite gnus to work with
Guile, which is just a scripting language, and not an entire editor.
It still won't be small, or light, but at least you could use whatever
editor you want, and slowly rewrite parts of it in C.

Sounds like a fun project, I wish you the best of luck.

A happy mutt user,
