thanks for sharing your work!

I gave it a brief look.
Is my understanding good that you don't do a crypto challenge
to check for the ownership of secret key.

How did you consider privacy issues (like people in Germany demanding that you 
delete their personal information) or spam?

Is this going to be like I first thought about a fallback server, so can I 
take this as a statement that Mailvelope is going to implement ? :)
