However, Enigmail should not use that, because TB it is a plain GUI
application. By not using Pinentry you would present the user a
different interface than other applications and features like GNOME's
integration with the login password won't work.
 I pondered to prefix it with "mis-" but GNOME folks have selected
different trade-offs between security and user experience.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
