A couple of questions (that may sound a bit 'snarky' but aren't
intended to be)...

When was the last time the todo list at the website was updated?  There
appear to be several things on the list that appear to be already
done.  It would be nice to know where the current thrust is.

When are we going to get 'real time' spell checking on windows?  To me,
that's the one thing that is preventing me from recommending sylpheed
to other users.  I know I can 'edit with external editor' and do spell
checking out there, but that's "not good enough" for most folks when
essentially every other email client on windows can do it.
