It's been hooked for mutt but AFAIR, the hook for mutt consists of a
formail -XFrom: -XSubject: -XMessage-ID: >> some_file
and the rest is MUA independent and is mostly perl. Within mutt, it's
simply a matter of a keybinding to the formail line above to eliminate a
thread or sender from your pop downloads. I've not tried it out yet but
must get around to it some day...
