That's way I said *even* this would be a better idea.

Please read my former posting:
 - There might be perhaps a very very ugly workaround.
 - If every pine user who is bothered by the current situation would
   write a kind and friendly e-mail to the authors in which he would
   describe his problems using pine in his own words and that he
   thinks about switching to mutt every time he is facd to this problems
   they might be think about this stupid license.

(Well, I've thought that every user on this list knows that  mailbombing
 is a bad idea and I wanted to find an abbreviation for what I wrote here.)

Kind regards
