If I could click on my evolution directory, and get folders that correspond to my actual mail folders, with a mail list view, it would be pretty useful.  Virtual folders in Nautilus would also be a huge plus.  These two alone are probably a good amount of work though....I'd like to see things like this implemented before we get too carried away.  We need the foundational bits before we can start doing the really cool stuff later on.
