I honestly think that without better editor integration, and / or some
way of validating that the content is actually formatted properly (or
post-editing formatting within Mutt), that it's not a good idea for Mutt
to support flowed text. Even when people are using the right options in
vim and doing everything else right, it seems very fragile and prone to
generating invalid flowed emails.
