Perfect. Nice to know that there are not many things left.

I did that. I could not find any options for the linking of the sieve
library however. If there is one, tell me.

Hmm. Will this change be available in the alpha release?

I converted my program to use the new namespace already.
I noticed one more change in the way the registration of modules takes
place (cleaner API).

My piece of code 

    list_t bookie;
    registrar_get_list (&bookie);
    list_append (bookie, mbox_record); 
    list_append (bookie, path_record);
    /*    list_append (bookie, maildir_record); */ /* Maildir support is to be 
activated later */
    /* Possible supported mailers.  */
    list_append (bookie, sendmail_record);
    list_append (bookie, smtp_record);

got replaced by

   /* Register local mbox formats (mailutils stuff). */
    mu_registrar_record (mu_mbox_record);
    mu_registrar_record (mu_path_record);
    /* This is to be added later for maildir support */
    /* mu_registrar_record (mu_maildir_record); */

    /* Possible supported mailers.  */
    mu_registrar_record (mu_sendmail_record);
    mu_registrar_record (mu_smtp_record);

Thanks Sergey
