[Evolution] WebID integration


my name is jÃrgen jakobitsch. i'm a member of w3c's webid community
group [1].

we are currently debating about signed emails which in include a webID

i just filed an enhancement bug report [4], because Subject's
Alternative Names are not displayed when i open a certificate.

From what i can tell from source it is kind of trivial to include
support for displaying the values of SAN.

my question however is :

is it possible to change certificate-viewer.c (smime/gui) behaviour via
an ePlugin?
what i intend to do is to create WebID support in evolution in such a
way the i can retrieve information about a webID, which comes with a
signed mail (in der certificate's SAN) or do i have to change the source
code and build evolution myself?

also please note, i'm a total gnome development newbie, so any pointer
to some sort of ePlugin template i can use as a starter is warmly

please also note that a webID is basically a URI pointing to a foaf
document, like this : http://www.turnguard.com/turnguard.

what i wanna do is to add another tab to certificate viewer and display
the name (http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/givenName in the above example) and
the picture (http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/depiction in the above example).

any pointer and|or help greatly appreciated.
