[Users] HTML presentation plugin

One of the features I need in a mail client is inline presentation of HTML
mails. I really like Claws' attitude towards HTML in mail -- never produce it
yourself, default to not presenting HTML -- but to my regret, I cannot impose
that attitude on everyone I communicate with.
When I started my "move to Claws" project, I noted that Claws supports HTML
mail presentation via different plugins. However, it seems that these plugins
have gone stale -- Debian includes none of them, the Fancy plugin is now
considered insecure, and the Dillo and Html2gtk plugins have been removed from
the list of plugins.
I tried the basic workarounds I found suggested online -- the "open with"
functionality, with a browser. I found that Firefox and Chrome do not get the
right encoding, and that Dillo does not seem to support Right-to-Left
languages. So, none of these seem usable for me.
Is there work going on to restore this functionality?
If not, and I want to try, where would be a good place to start?
