yeah, i read the recent posts about the key binding and vim;
that's what brought my question to the fore. i did read on the
evolution list that a gvim plugin may happen. the main reason i
use mutt is that my fingers know vi. unfortunately, there're too
many things in email now that require a gui reader. be nice to
be able to read in evo and if i had to reply, use gvim.
