Apparently so does Red Hat/Fedora; the mutt package in the repos has
this feature included.  The default MacPorts configuration, however,
did not; I had to recompile (which was easy using the port command).

I don't know if this is a coincidence or not, but I will mention that
for the first time in a long while, Mutt segfaulted when I tried to
open a message on the gnupg mailing list... presumably when it tried
to call gnupg to do an automatic signature verification?  Other
signatures have verified fine since I switched to using gpgme; I'm
hoping this will prove to be an isolated incident, related to the
structure of that one signature (it does it every time I try to open
that message).

In any case, thanks for the tip.
