display-time, mail-icon and POP3 mailboxes

I'd like to add the ability to check POP3 mailbox for new messages (and
displaying mail icon). Now, we support only looking into file or directory
for new e-mail. POP3 support would be great. The implementation itself is
very easy (and already done, in fact).

But how should i get the hostname, username and password from user?

Rmail uses movemail which checks MAILHOST env. variable or the third field
of inbox (po:user:host). Gnus can set everything in mail-sources:

(setq mail-sources '((pop :server "my-server" :user "MyName" :password 

I do not know about VM and other mail programs. Do you have an idea?
Should I share values with those programs or should I invent new user
options display-time-pop3-{server,user,password}?

Pah! Benchmarks, smenchmarks! Give us your bogomips-rating, that's
the only thing that counts :-)
