Is it possible to install alpine on floriberto?

alpine is a text-based email client, (friendly for novices but powerful) but it is true :-)

I am trying mutt, but I never understood how to make it work, I used UW pine for years so alpine is better for me.

I would really love if it could be installed on floriberto (and maybe sisters and brothers like ossie and chelsea).

Description-en: Text-based email client, friendly for novices but powerful
 Alpine is an upgrade of the well-known PINE email client.  Its name derives
 from the use of the Apache License and its ties to PINE.
 It features a full suite of support for mail protocols like IMAP and SMTP and
 security protocols like TLS.  It uses curses for its interface.

Any objections to installing alpine, alpine-doc, alpine-pico, and pilot on the three machines mentioned in the description?

That's fine with me - in fact, I would suggest adding it to the MOSH puppet file so it goes to all MOSHes for consistency sake.
