This is true. I'd say we all have a good idea of how not to structure an
advanced mail client. I've read about the vfolder concept which is (was?)
used be Evolution... I am very excited by that, I for one one would be
interested in working on the vfolder code.
But right now, Balsa exists and Evolution is in the works. I use Balsa
