It makes sense that you want to try it. Whether that also means that the
Evolution Mailer maintainers will include your code is a different

You can, however, distribute your own Camel provider and register it in
the system in such a way that yours would be used if for example the
url_string starts with sebjames_spool://, that way you could flock users
to your implementation of the spool (in case the Evolution Mailer
maintainers aren't interested) (if you register it correctly, it will
even appear in the "New account" wizard of Evolution).

I am, being the tinymail author, however interested in the code that you
would produce.

On a mobile devices (which is the target audience of the tinymail
framework) it makes sense to get rid of not-needed information as soon
as possible.

Tinymail uses a forked version of Camel. The local providers haven't had
many changes so your code would probably flow in automatically.
