nod. they should come for free from what i remeber of libbalsa funcs

module GNOME {
  module Balsa {
	interface Balsa { 

module GNOME {
  module Balsa {
or should something there be called "Mail" ? or should be a property of the
interface (in bobonospeak if i'm not mistaken)

the attach stuff has issues and is prety much a placehold now. prolly, corba
and network speaking what i need is to pass the whole attachments, not
to them. this sounds miserably like Bonobo::Stream. i have to look into this.

yup ..

oh. i looked at bonobo and did without it to keep the extra weight down but
sounds like it's a necessity to keep stuff simple

gnome-pilot has corba stuff to put dbs on the palm and get the status of the
daemon and such. this would be a conduit that drives balsa. sync mail, get 
unread messages from balsa mailbox(s), send mail in pilot's outbox.
everything on gnome-pilot is modular as conduits except for the core stuff 
like pilot-link and UI and such.
