I know you didn't write this Knghtbrd, and as the maintainer of our Elm, I
don't really care one way or another, but:

Our Elm is not the standard Elm.  Ours is Elm-ME+, which *does* have active
development.  (It is, unlike mutt, a released thing though.)  It sports PGP,
MIME, etc. which the "normal" mutt does not.  It also has frequent updates
and an active upstream maintainer.

Yes, once mutt gets a config menu like our Elm does, I think it would be a
reasonable replacement at that time.
