I can change the default mappings, but then everyone else would have to
retrain their fingers. Maybe you could make a case for 'D'. Do other
ex-mutt users have this problem? (In general mutt keystroke
compatibility is not really my priority, but I do recognize my target
In the future keybindings will be configurable, but that's pretty far
down on the list at the moment.

I do plan to have Sup prompt you for To: so that you can have tab
completion. I'm not so sure about Subject though. In general I like to
keep stuff in the editor as much as possible because that's a far better
place to edit text than my shitty ncurses readline emulator.
Cursor positioning to below Subject: is editor-specific. With vi I
think you can use something like -c '/^$'.

Yeah, this is a known problem and I have no idea how to fix it. In fact
sometimes curses is just completely crazy after a suspend and I can't
get it to do anything sensible and have to ^C. No idea.
