I started to do a workaround based on a local proxy used as smarthost
and pop3 host for netscape (you can enter localhost:1234 to connect to
an smtp daemon running on port 1234). This tool should do all the
crypto stuff and has to popup a window to ask for passphrases and
to select the recipient's key.
I have given up on this becuase Netscape is dead and will be replaced
by one based on the Moziall code. So the canonical way to implement
GnuPG into the new Netscape is by understanding how the 4 millon lines
of Mozilla code are supposed to work and thenn add GnuPG support.
It will happen, but don't ask me how long it is going to take.
