I suppose that's one way to define the terms.  I was thinking that
unreasonable would be more aptly applied to a request that wasn't
grounded in any good reasoning.  Not feasible could be applied for
either lack of manpower or lack of an available set of hooks to
achieve the goal.

While I think that the Enigmail team has done a really great job of
integrating OpenPGP into Thunderbird[1], I'm a happy Mutt user and not
looking to switch back to any graphical MUA. ;-)

I sincerely appreciate the efforts of all those folks that create the
tools so many of us use, from the kernel hackers working on low level
drivers for obscure funtions I will likely never understand, to David,
Werner, Timo and all the GnuPG developers/contributors, to Ingo, John,
Patrick and others who spend hours integrating those pieces into easy
to use graphical interfaces that I can teach a friend to use pretty

[1] For Windows, Thunderbird with Enigmail is the only thing I'd
recommend to friends getting started.  For linux, it's either
Thunderbird/Enigmail or Kmail.  Both projects have done a lot to make
using PGP both seemless and secure.
