Well, I don't know how much you all remember, but the BALSA-CONFIG branch
of CVS is basically stable. Instead of libPropList we use a thin layer around
gnome-config; this layer automates many of the configuration issues, such as
session management and providing defaults.

I don't want to merge the branches yet, but I would really like to have some
people play with it and comment.

I hope that the Balsa-config API will make things like filters easier, as it
make it easy to store arrays of rules and the like, and reading them into
is ridiculously easy (although the basis of this is maybe it a bit precarious
-- email
me for a more complete description, interested parties).

I'm afraid that I won't be able to be too active on Balsa for a while, as my 
'day job' at Helix Code is fun, but I end up a little drained of energy to go
and program some more. I intend to fix some stuff with the init druid (they
committed in HEAD but not latest-0-8) and I hope to assist Pawel with a new
folder model.

As I am understanding Stuart's idea, instead of keeping a global 'local mail
and showing mailboxes directly on the CTree, we have a couple of server-like
each of which provides a tree of folders: one being a local mail directory,
being an IMAP server, another being a POP3 server that provides one inbox.
Sorry, I
don't think I'm making things any clearer :-)

While we're on this I would like to mention that I'd enjoy rm -rf'ing
libmutt.... but that
would be a lot of effort for a questionable gain.
