 Today (with the state of mailman) is perhaps not a good day to
reply, but - I was going to reply to the ticket for gmime-2.6.10
until I saw it was being brought back to -dev, so

1. 2.6.1 gave me grief last year, it apparently needs gpgme, so I've
been happy to stick to 2.4.

2. One single ticket has shades of "one ticket to rule them all" ;-)
and as I think Randy said on the ticket - some of these packages are
used more widely than just in gnome.
