I think this might be the only encryption that common versions of
Outlook Express support.  As a low priority TODO list item, (like if it
never gets done, there's no worries) I think it can probably stay on.

The advantage of having it just do this itself is that other utilities
aren't required to get this configured up in something like Debian.

It certainly shouldn't block a 1.0 release, though.

Cool.  =) I haven't followed the sieve/guile work very closely.  Is it
possible to do this as a shell script of some sort?  It would be neat to
include this in an 'examples' directory.

Also, emacs includes 'movemail', and they've wanted to get us to include
that for a while.  Including this tool might solve a number of needs
that way.

I've had vague thoughts of daemonising mail.local and having it support
LMTP.  This task could be renamed to that, probably.
