I plan to change the namespaces of the src/plugins/evolution and the
specification that can be found here: http://live.gnome.org/Evolution/Metadata
to more generic forms (remove the GNOME and Evolution pieces).
I also plan to implement a KMail plugin that works in the same way.
Perhaps will this one be done using Akonadi instead, but I'm not sure
about this yet (I need to consult with the KMail developers on this).
After that we/I might also add a plugin for Thunderbird and Modest.
What is the status of Modest support? Few months ago it was claimed
working, but no word since.
That support for Modest used the 'parse raw cache data' way. The current
'old' support for Evolution would be fairly easy to adapt to this and
that would indeed work already.
Proper support for Modest (like the metadata API) is planned. I have no
ETA for this, sorry.
