There was some discussion about this on the upstream development list here:

The link you provided is to a single message with no replies from a few months 
ago. We have different definitions of "discussion".

This is a feature that is used heavily by email users within my organization,

Red Hat desktop.

Is it against Red Hat policy to add useful features to programs before the 
upstream providers?
