Ouch, the mail gets stored _unencrypted_?  I think that's a terrible
idea.  I'd be okay with adding code that did that, but I would never
support making that default behavior.  One-time signature verification,
that is okay.

Regarding the other ideas about changing the back-end storage of messages;
I _myself_ am not interested in writing that code.  If someone else wants
to write that code, I would be supportive of adding it to nmh (but we'd
have to think about compatibility, etc etc).  So have at it, gentlemen!
