I'm testing some code for changing the `From:' widget in the
compose window from a text-entry box with address-book-completion
(LibBalsaAddressEntry) to a drop-down list (GtkComboBox) of
addresses from the user's identities. It's been discussed on
this list, without opposition iirc.
Changing the `From:' address also changes the identity for the
message; if we didn't do that, an old signature would be used
with the new sender. That also changes other settings, like the
defaults for signing and encrypting, which might take the user by
The drop-down-list could be expanded to two columns, with the
address in the first and the identity name in the second. The
change of identity would be clearer, but the display would be
more cluttered. I'm not sure which would be better.
Comments or suggestions?
