I'm not sure what needs explaining.  I'd hope it meant that movemail
got expert maintenance from someone else with important features like
IMAP (see etc/TODO) and APOP.  Mailutils already has specific support
for Emacs since its `mh' component is already advertised primarily to
support mh-e, so I guess it would be open to providing movemail.  I
guess you'd end up with substantially more source for the program in
Emacs, and you'd have to sync it, but that seems worthwhile.

The job that movemail does is basically a subset of what `mail' has to
do to extract messages to your mbox, so adding a movemail program to
mailutils should be easy.
