Still, it looks like mutt 1.5 is getting wide spread, so perhaps I
should just include everything for both versions.

I'll check the mutt sources for other changes that falls into line with
the current syntax file.

I should find time to go over this on the weekend. I'll drop you a note.

Yeah - other things have kept me off usenet and mailing lists for some
time now. I always hope to find more time for these things.
