That's for sure. Seems like I'll have to stick to mutt for the time
being, though I've briefly looked at some other solutions like sup [1]
and notmuch [2] (I quite the sense of humour around the second project).
Still, they're not quite ready to replace the comfortable workflow I
have with mutt.

That's probably not a problem, apart from MIME, which IMO is a
convoluted mess of a solution, esp. allowing nesting MIME messages
inside one-another...
