I'm a bit out of the loop, but that statment is like saying that
Netscape is so terribly inflexible compared to XML. Mutt is a

Which is nice, but there exist Perl modules -- heck, maybe libraries
:) -- to deal with typical mailbox format. And then you can build
anything. But yes; mh in a sense already has everything conveniently
laid out as little tools, in the unix mindset.
