Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.7
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The "mua" option allowed a custom mua command to be defined, but it
was only permitted for the list of 5 supported muas. This patch allows
an arbitrary mua command string to be defined.

The defined mua is set to default, and is added to the list of available

This also adds a 'mua-version' option, which specifies the mua
command-line argument for 'no action', which is used in utils.mua_exists()
as an 'are you there?" check. This only applies to custom muas. The option
defaults to "--version".

As a side effect, the overloaded definition of 'mua' in utils, where
it could either be a string or a Mua object, depending on user options,
is eliminated.

This does not introduce any test failures.
