The MapiClient program is in flux. It functionality is quickly made
on par with what is available for other systems.
Rendering a tabular display is probably the most important feature,
but also help functionality for MAL programmers is worth mentioning.

There will/should be a simple version of \t that will do the job on a
line by line basis. The statement boundaries are not easy to detect.

yes. Given the fact that Mtest ignores lines starting with # makes it
possible to realize this feature.

A few more steps are needed to make MapiClient the default textual
interface for all.

The request list includes: CVS and TSV output. Or even XML and HTML.
Inclusion of an easy logging.

So, a few more things to do during this summer activity.
