Not likely, it seems kind of overkill. But you could just tag email
accounts with both communication and email, and they'd show up in both

I'm also planning on setting up account browsing in much the same way
epiphany does bookmark browsing (automatically creating a tree based on
tags and their relationships).

Good point - just tag it favorite :)

Well, this is due to user requests - people want to be able to generate
passwords when people are looking over their shoulder. But I could
include a checkbox in the dialog to show/hide the password, opened a
ticket for this (#209).

Hm, ok - I'll look into it. Seen the same issue with some other apps too
(most notably Epiphany), so might be something in GTK.

Well, from 0.5.0 the file will be automatically saved on any change, as
I'm doing away with the whole explicit open/save thing. This would mean
making a new backup on every change, which is kind of useless (you could
just use undo/redo instead).

Yes, this will be done from 0.5.0. No more New/Open/Save file, it will
use a hidden file in your homedir.

This will probably be better handled through the password history.
