We made the choice of letting plugins use all of Claws' API, and we're
lacking manpower, so there isn't API documentation other than in the

The code will be your documentation ;)
If you wonder about things and need to ask about things, you will find
great help both on the devel at lists.claws-mail.org mailing-list, and on
#claws on irc.freenode.net.

The most difficult API in Claws Mail is for the folder classes; if your
plugin isn't a new folder class, it should go rather easily, if not,
you'll probably join us on IRC :)

And of course... thanks for this future plugin, whatever it may be!
