I can confirm that there isn't much call for updating the thing. Anyway,
being supported in RedHat is different from being supported (on a _very_
casual, as-needed basis). Also, to the best of my knowledge, POSIX still
requires the utility, but I think it's past time to deprecate it there,
too. With all mailers handling MIME attachments, I see little reason to
continue support.
