[[laughs]] 8-)

I think what I find cumbersome is trying to do OO with C.
I was in a conference at IBM listening to Havoc Pennigton(Gtk Fame)
saying how gtk is trying to be OO(with C) but if he could
turn back the clock he would use a real OO language (C++).

Trying to do OO with a structural language like C, is
a lot of kitchen work.  For the last 5 months, I've been
doing Java day and nights ... so...

I do not want to scare anybody, but maybe(only maybe) we
should take a seriously look at some basic C++ for mailutils2
...  Ok I've said it ... I feel better.
