It's been blogged too. I think Neo is kind of in your face and it is about the hate Microsoft has for Open Source Linux. The idea of a embargo is a good idea.

In Buster, Mutt means Mutt, and Neomutt means Neomutt.

I suppose if you want to use "Vanilla" Mutt in Stretch you need to get it some
other way.
