What would be pretty cool is a way to assign colors to mails server-
side. Back in the days I tried to insert some X-Evolution-Colors (or
something like that, I can't remember how Evo called this field) to the
mails by hand but it was stripped by Evo. Nowadays it seems Evo stores
that somewhere in the summary. I'd really like to be able to colorize
mails subjects on the server (next step is to edit server-side filters
from within Evo, but I'd be happy with a homemade filer).

Hmm, yes, that would be handy.  The only way i could see this working would be if we changed to using imap flags for labels, and then you'd only need to work out how to assign the 'flags' on the imap side (which may not be that easy either).  It would limit the 'colours' to the 5 labels (which would be better than nothing at least).

There is of course, a non-trivial amount of work to get this to work this way, but it would have the added benefit of working across multiple clients to the same imap folders and storing this state server-side (well, where the server supports this feature).  I think it could also be compatible with mozilla mail's labels too.
