My quick .02,

I use pine via SSH on my box at work, since it's been the only way I can
keep mail messages organized and available on the work, home, and laptop
machines. Pine users shouldn't complain too much, since you can set it up
to launch a web browser for inline URL's in mail messages. I have mine
launch lynx by default, but the nice thing about SSH is that you can
forward secure X connections and even a biggie like the KDE web browser
runs surprisingly well over DSL...

But I agree, a one-line description would be polite.
