currently there is only the backend implemented, evolution emits a
message on the session dbus (used for communication between programs) if
new mail arrives....(you can see this messages by running dbus-monitor
in a terminal)

...whats missing is the listening part of this game....

i'm the author of evonotify [1] and i'm planning to rewrite it in python
and want to make use of this dbus message, to have a working mail
notification frontend in breezy ....
