However, getting one to *not* do so[1] is a pain in the ass (kernel
patch required and needs reapplied after every kernel update).

I've got mutt and vim wired tightly together, but its more vim-with-mutt
than what you have with Emacs :) .

There's obnam[1] that I've been eyeing, but have been unable to setup
yet (I've been lacking a landline Internet connection for two months now
:/ ) due to my FreeBSD machine being in the process of a rebuild (which
is paused do to it lacking Internet).


[1]It was cheap from a coworker and I just need it to test that things
build and work on OS X. tmux and ssh do the job without having to deal
with the things I hate with its user interface (mouse-happy, crappy
keyboard modifier placement, a trackpad I hate using, no
focus-follows-mouse, and more).
