What Evolution subcomponents would need to be accessed to code such a module?
In this country (and a few neighboring ones), legally-binding digital signatures
are already enforced by law, only the technology to implement them is missing
(except for Windows, of course...).

Depends on how its done.

See and their TrueSign technology. That was made in
response to the Estonian Government's e-signature law.

This one is only the tip of the iceberg.  I bet that other countries' technology
think tanks have also invented other solutions that will be legally-binding in
THEIR country.  The point is, Evolution needs a common API that is specifically
designed for integrating document authenticating/signing solutions, beyond PGP,
at least until EU or ISO produces _the_ standard we'll all have to adopt.
