I added two bugzillas (glib for mem allocation, and gtk+ for the entry)  
for that a few minutes ago [1, 2]. If I find some time, I could try to at  
least provide parts of it myself. But there is s/mime support for balsa  
waiting, as well as some stuff left for GnuPG, so this will be anything  
else but fast...

Cheers, Albrecht.
