My approach to HTML mail is to convert it to plain text in procmail
before it even hits my mailbox.

Unfortunately, the current VM maintainer (Uday) is an academic (like
me), and the demands on our time are essentially unlimited. I can't
speak for Uday, but I only fix software when either (a) I really need
it fixed for myself, or (b) I'm desperately procrastinating!

slrn. It's the best I can do to recapture that 1980s experience.
