Actually, Jeff Bailey is working on a Pine replacement called Feline
that uses (will use, uses what's available of) libmailbox from (the
as-of-yet still available only in CVS) GNU mailutils. I don't know if
he's looking for help, though. But, if you want to do a MUA, we (the
mailutils people) are looking for feedback on the libmailbox API. See
http://www.gnu.org/software/devel.html#CVS for how to get to the CVS.
