One of the bounties was to have an evolution based applet to show when
you have new mail.  Basically, why should you configure your mail
sources twice?  From what I remember (and backed up by the bug --
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=127516) someone got one
working, just after the original deadline.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see what you can genericize
here.  The applet itself wouldn't have any intrinsic properties related
to Kerberos, it has to do with the way that you actually contact and
authenticate with whatever service you're trying to use and they're all
a bit different here.  As far as the just doing the kerberos bits,
that's what libkrb5 is for.
