+# mutt-patched: sidebar keybindings
+
+[[debpkg mutt-patched]] it's really cool, [thanks Myon for advertising
+it](http://www.df7cb.de/blog/2008/mutt-patched.html). Actually I've tried it
+only in the hope that it could solve [[debbug 459739]] (don't bother trying: it
+doesn't), but I'm now liking it, especially the [sidebar
+patch](http://www.lunar-linux.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=44).
+
+Unfortunately it lacks default keybindings for moving the sidebar cursor (why
+the heck: since the sidebar is enabled by default, am I supposed only to *look*
+at it?). Here are mine, in case someone wants a "plug and play" configuration
+for her `.muttrc`:
+
+    zack@aquarium:~$ cat .muttrc |tail -n 6
+    # mutt sidebar settings
+    bind index,pager \CP sidebar-prev
+    bind index,pager \CN sidebar-next
+    bind index,pager \CO sidebar-open
+    macro index,pager B '<enter-command>toggle sidebar_visible<enter>'
+    color sidebar_new yellow default
+
+They are basically a subset of those proposed on [the
+homepage](http://www.lunar-linux.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=44),
+but I did not like changing the default semantics of `b`.
+See also [[debbug 459725]].
