That would be cool; adds some visibility and makes it easy for people

There have been some pain points with Sylpheed for me that I considered
trying to address but I was unsure if the project was stil alive. So
maybe I'll see if I can work on them now that it's clear the project is
still alive:

 - OAuth support
 - S/MIME support (at least for reading non-encrypted messages)
 - high/mixed DPI issues on Windows
 - column resizing behaviour so you don't get horiz. scroll bars all
   the time
