Re: [Evolution] asynchronous signature checking

I find it quite tedious to have to wait for Evolution ( to have
to wait for gpg to return the result of a message integrity check before
displaying the message for reading.  It would be nice if the integrity
check could happen asynchronously and update the message display when it
has gotten the answer.  So like:

     1. Retrieve message.
     2. Display message.
     3. Display "Integrity unknown... Signature check in progress" where
        integrity status is normally shown.
     4. Launch gpg, and wait async. for it's return.
     5. Update message display if it returns while message is still
        being displayed.
     6. If message display is closed before gpg returns, kill it.


I think it's a great idea.  Evo is multi-threaded after all...
