A first, quick but late, reaction. No, of course, I really don't mind at all.
On the contrary, I'm willing to get as many reactions as possible. That does
not mean I'll apply them all, but you always can try to convince me.

Thanks. Yeah, very nice mode-line, IMHO, both the active and the inactive one.

I like that. I can try to find alternative tints, but please know that I'm
fond of comments, and consider them as one of the most important part of the
code. I mean, when they are some, they often are very important to be read.
Hence, more a choice in the direction of the red, than in the direction of the
light gray -- as often done.

Yes, apparently, we don't use the same good-looking fonts. What fonts are you
using? On which system?

One problem may come as well from the fact I mixed (on purpose) proportional
and non-proportional types of fonts for the different elements of the mail
header. Maybe that's not such a great idea...

Can you be more precise?  Are you talking of the different colors depending on
the type of files?  Are you talking of the inverse video used for the current
(highlighted) line?

Thanks a lot!
