Well I still have one hand left.

FYI, things are coming good, but unfortunately I still have
couple of things :

- Registers:  meaning using shared libs; the application register
the mailbox format it  is interrested in:
int main ()
  mailbox_register_add (&pop_entry);
  mailbox_register_add (&imap_entry);
  mailbox_register_add (&mmdf_entry);
  mailbox_register_add (&mbox_entry);

And when running those format will be loaded: dlopen ("pop.so", ..);
etc ...
This will reduce to a minimum the size of the applications.
Some sort of plugins.

The API to do this is still unclear and fuzzy.  Ideas are welcome.

- Send mail: was not finish yet.

- Thread-safe: almost finish

And Things that did not make it or are still drafts:

- imap client
- mailbox managers
- news client

> I was thinking that I should get around to starting Hydrant...

Docs are "desuet" but you could look at the work done by Jakob
for mailx and pop3d still unfinish but will give you an excellent
idea of the API.  Also look at the public headers

But for Hydrant you have still not sent me the promise design(white) papers

au revoir, alain
