iirc, they said that they want to support only one protocol and settled
for S/MIME.  This still did not explain why they rejected our proposal
to clean up their S/MIME code and implement missing stuff so that TB
could be used for tasks of the German administrative and to be
compatible with a wider range of S/MIME implementations.  The plan was
to do that all within TB and without external dependencies.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
