How would you do this? Client certs? GPG?
I have a script that will allow inbound email from the inside of our 
network (it works very much like fetchmail, in fact I bet it could be 
replaced with fetchmail), but it doesn't authenticate in any way. An 
authentication mechanism that anyone can use without getting in the way 
of normal email sending/recieving (through outlook and exchange) would 
be awesome (I could open the script up to the outside) but I haven't 
figured out how to do it.

So have the ability to show your saved searches in the header and/or 
footer in user prefs.

Because I have replaced it in the header with a searchbox, I moved it to 
the footer. The header is much more valuable space than the footer and 
should be wisely used.

Which is exactly what I am doing (and what the bug says). The only 
reason I haven't done it yet is that you say in the bug that we should 
have it in mainline bugzilla for 3.0 (or 3.2). If it gets in to the main 
bugzilla would this cause any issues for those of us that have already 
implemented a custom field with the same name? Is this a testcase that 
has been considered?
