Package: elm-me+
Version: N/A
Severity: wishlist

I like the frm(1) program which comes with Elm, but I don't wish to
install the whole Elm package for a single small utility.

Would you consider moving the non-Elm-specific utilities into their
own separate package? Most of the following I think could benefit from
being made available to a broader audience.

usr/bin/answer                                              mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/checkalias                                          mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/fastmail                                            mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/frm                                                 mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/listalias                                           mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/messages                                            mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/newalias                                            mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/newmail                                             mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/nfrm                                                mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/printmail                                           mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/readmsg                                             mail/elm-me+
usr/bin/wnewmail                                            mail/elm-me+

(Not intimately familiar with many of these -- no doubt some of them
will only work with Elm aliases or something.)

Meanwhile, I'm sure I can cook up a simple shell function with
formail(1) for my own needs, so this is definitely a wishlist-level

Agreed.  The thing is, elm-me+ utilities use a common library which is
more than twice the size of mailutils.
