Mutt's configuration is not that bad: very powerful and easily
reusable on my various accounts.

The only thing I find awful is its quoting mechanism. For instance,
here's one of my macros:

macro   index   y               "<limit>~y\"( |\\\\\\\`)( |\\\\\\\')\"<left><left><left><left><left><left><left><left><left>" "limit to some label"

See the number of consecutive backslashes!
