I like Haiku's email system very much, and the idea of single files, 
queries and a quick and simple app like Mail. That said, there are a 
few small bug-fixes and improvements that would make it so much better.
From past comments, I gather that the code of it all is kinda messy. Is 
that correct?

I was wondering, how feasible is it for somebody (not me, goodness!) 
not familiar with the code to change and improve stuff? For example 
some of the open tickets:

Plus, I have an IMHO neat little idea concerning queries that doesn't 
strike me as difficult to implement, but would change the view layout 
of the New-Mail window a bit. (Can the window layout when reading mails 
be different than when writing a mail?)

So, is a Dr. Zoidberg needed to grok Mail?
