  As of R5, xmh has a new action proc called XmhShellCommand. A string
  parameter will be executed as a shell command with the currently
  selected messages as parameters (or the current message if there are
  no selected messages).

  Using this new action, a couple of shell scripts, a window version
  of emacs (e.g. xemacs) and some elisp code, xmh can use emacs as its
  editor instead of the built in Athena text widget editor. This
  doesn't require any source code changes to xmh. These are included
  in the Appendix "Switching xmh's editor".
