Ah, no, I think I'll have to leave that to the others.  Mainly because
I already have quite the task ahead of me with the future planned
GPGME Python 3 work (GPyGME, but it's waiting on the GPGME overhaul),
though also because the last serious effort I made at any GUI
programming was with Tkinter about 15 years ago (and I sucked at it).

As for more modern things ... well I'verecently dumped Thunderbird to
return to Mutt plus Emacs, so I guess that says something.  Note, that
wasn't Enigmail's fault, it was purely the compounding of Mozilla's
... whatever it's becoming (plus it can't handle the volume of mail
and accounts I have to deal with).
