    It all depends on the work habits of the individual user.  There are
many cases where mutt's 80s mentality gets in the way of efficient work
on my desktop.  Just as while I am a vim devotee for programming Python
I most certainly would not use it for creating documents fit for
printing.  Yes, I know there's LaTeX, but vim + LaTeX does not work for
me for writing just as OOWriter does not work for me for programming.
