I came to that myself some time ago, when I started this looked like the 
easest way. But now I think moving the code to libbalsa is also an option. 
Look at this patch as a prototype system for the gmime stuff, doing 
something with gmime was my first goal.

Well, libbalsa sometimes bypasses the LibBalsaMessage and LibBalsaMailbox 
interfaces to access mutt functions, Those classes should be extented to 
support the functionality needed.
