Funny, you wrote that mail with evo. ;)

Fact is that they proposed the new evolution-2.0 package, which  
includes some major changes for "gnomification", and really sounds  
promising. And I don't have any doubts it will be accepted.

Why "too late"? noone forces you to use epiphany right now. I'm still  
using galeon, which I like much more than epiphany, and you'll also be  
able to continue using balsa for mailing if you want.

My personal opinion is that balsa still isn't ready for gnome- 
integration, and I'm not even sure if it's the way the developers want  
it to go.
