Watching Sean True wrestle with the Outlook plugin at the start, doing my
bit to help with that then, and watching Mark Hammond wrestle with it ever
after, I'm halfway toward concluding that no mail client has a usable plugin
architecture.  The good news is that they will, just as soon as they're all
rewritten in Python <wink>.
