I noticed that I could speed up the minting script by just adding if logic to check of there are indeed any mails in the list. If not, move on. Also, made a mode change to verify_hashcash.py, so it will actually execute. Heh.
Chose to use a date timestamp for the version numbers, rather than "1.0", "2.0", etc. This way, it is clear when the latest release is without checking the webpage for the date. Also, chose to use the GPLv3 for the license, because Mutt is licensed under the GPLv2+ and it didn't make sense to give the project a license that allows proprietary redistribution, when the very project it relies on does not. Lastly, the minting and verification Python scripts are inital adds.
