Remember Evolution will only be the backend, no frontend. So when evolution
becomes usable you could modify Balsa to work with it. Would be nice to not
have to worry about the backend stuff and only concentrate on a good UI.
Later you could implement the Balsa GUI as a Bonobo component and use it
instead of the mailer that'll be coded with this whole gnome-pim thing.
