preliminary patch for separate S/MIME account preferences

When an account mail address has multiple S/MIME keys, one is possibly forced
configure the key to use in the account preferences. But if PGP is also in use,
the single setting in Claws makes it impossible to have an independent choice
for the key to use for that.

I am attaching a proof-of-concept for this feature. I just duplicated the
GPG prefs into S/MIME prefs and introduced separate storage. It seems to work
nicely for me. I do not suggest to just apply this patch with it's cargo cult
approach, but it shows the functionality.

What I am not sure about is the key generation function. I presume one would
need to change things there, too, to work with S/MIME. No idea, since my
S/MIME keys come out of the web browser because of the web-based process
with the CA.
