I had the same thought yesterday, after an Emacs-Lisp session in which
I was trying to get Gnus to do exactly what I wanted it to...

Out of curiosity, how much work would it take to write an easily
configurable, decent MUA in Haskell? I don't know too much about MUAs,
but I have a feeling that we already have quite a few libraries that
are needed for the job: UIs (including HTML rendering...), plugins,
various protocols, encryption...
