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.
