You've all got it wrong. This is something I've brought up once before,
and someone said 'hurd'. Well, sorry, hurd is immature. Anyway, it would
be a kernel level thing. You know how a symlink is just a file with a
path in it, and a special flag that says 'follow'. Well, these things
I'm talking about would just be a file containing a _command_ with a
special flag that says 'execute and give the output'. So you have a file
with contents thus:
grepmail --date-in-the-last-month # i made this up, haven't looked yet

This file would be flagged exemutable (or whatever you call it) and
named ~/Mail/recent

mutt -f ~/Mail/recent

voila
