AFAIK most work has been done and only minor changes are needed to get it
ready for shipping. But I'd rather leave it to Ben Bucksch and have him have
the last word on this. He did all the programming and he knows where the
implementation of SPECIAL-USE currently stands.

BTW: It has been reported that Outlook 2013 supports SPECIAL-USE. If we had
both significant mail clients support that feature at about the same time we'd
really could make peoples life out there easier. And I'd hate to leave that
Outlook only. ;)
