Maybe I'll poke the devs about this.

  $ guix package --show=alot | grep synopsis
  synopsis: Commandline MUA using @code{notmuch} and @code{urwid}

I guess no markup support in the synopsis, I'll just trim it down to:

  "Commandline MUA using notmuch"

It uses python-urwid inasmuch as it uses python-twisted, but it's (to me)
primarily known for its usage of the notmuch mail indexing system and for being
written in python.  I'll poke the devs and come back with a new patch if

Still including the 'MUA' abbreviation because I think it is common enough.

Some linting:

  $ guix lint -c $EVERYTHING_EXCEPT_CVE alot python{2,}-urwidtrees
  $ echo $?

(CVE checker takes too long, I'm using slow wifi from a café)

Finally, I'll say that I do use it, and it does build and work correctly.
