RE: libfetchmail

A gui wrapper would fix that problem. Just because a program is console
based dosnt mean that it cant be used by a gui program
(look at gtm. It uses wget). In fact, I think it is better to have a console
program wraped by a gui in most cases. That way, the user can use the
program gui if he/she dosnt want to play with cli, and console if he/she
knows what he/she is doing. Choice is a good thing. :)

The idea behind this project is to build a _GUI_ mailer, procmail is console
and people'll have to play w/ regex's etc.

Personally I love my fetchmail + procmail setup, but that's not the point
right now :)
