I will try to add it, it should not be too complicated.

Yes indeed - and even better: Tinymail development is really fast so it is quite
likely that most of the necessary features are available already.
It would be a good start to update the changes to become compatible with latest
Tinymail so that we can create a working patch against Tinymail SVN.

Could you explain in a few words what JSR 266 says? :)

That's always a good idea... and keep in mind that he sometimes implements
things faster than we all can even think about it :-)
