These lines are great for a new mutt user. They really should be in the
/etc/Muttrc file... at least commented out and documented. postinst could
even mention that such sane bindings exist.

LeftArrow goes to previous message when in paged view... so why does
UpArrow? It's very intuitive to use UpArrow to scroll up the current
screen.  ditto for RightArrow/DownArrow.
