Okay, I got everything up and working last night...only to
realize that exmh2 does not (appear to) handle mail threading. 
Ooops!  Oh well, I learned a lot about fetchmail and procmail,
and will probably continue to use them, regardless of which mail
client I settle on.

So, to revise my question, what are my options for a threaded
mail client, for either GUI or console?  I think I'll look into
Mutt next, as it's threaded and handles both mbox and MH.  Hmmm,
does emacs with VM/e-mh/gnus handle threads?  Any others?
