Subject: a tweak of enigmail.js to get it to work with gpg 1.2.1 and
hushmail public keys

This tweak applies to enigmail 0.73.1
I had this idea that there might be some way to tweak enigmail to work
properly with gpg 1.2.1 for sending to hushmail. I have tested it and it
appears to work fine with standard gpg recipients too (well, at least
with my own one anyway).
It seemed to be that putting < and > around email addresses makes gpg
not work properly with hushmail 2.2 keys, so I searched through the file
'enigmail.js' within the mozilla/components directory (I'm using the
win32 version of mozilla) for the parts where it inserts these
characters into the commandline around email addresses, and then it
works with hushmail keys. @#$@#$ hushmail not strictly adhering to
openpgp. anyway, this tweak fixes enigmail so it works.
I have attached the modified enigmail.js for the version mentioned, I
don't know whether it will get through into the remail that the list
server does, but anyway, if need be I can mail it to someone who can
pass it on to the enigmail development team.
