pine is like vanilla ice cream.  If you've never had another kind of ice
cream you can easily say it's everything you need.  But if you try
enough of the other gadzillion flavours you're going to find there's
something you like even more because vanilla is just too basic.  Mutt is
significantly more complex than pine, but it has many _necessary_
features that pine just lacks.  Once you've learned to use those
features, there's no way to go back.
