Actually, the reason this thread started (I beleive) is that the
gpg-related configuration stuff in /etc/Muttrc has changed several times
recently (thus triggering the dpkg alert).  I imagine that integrating
Mutt with other programs (like gpg) will generally continue to be a
moving target in the future, and it seems like the simplest solution to
this would be to split the gpg stuff into say, /etc/mutt/gpg.conf (or
whatever) and source that file in /etc/Muttrc.  I think the rest of the
stuff in /etc/Muttrc rarely changes, and this would IMHO provide a
slightly cleaner configuration layout.

But I suppose this could really be a matter of personal preference.
After all, in a perfect world it would be /etc/mutt.conf anyway... =)
