It seems the web email client I sometimes have to use pulled in some
obvious tricks. Here's the intro again, perhaps now better formatted.

One note about the first patch, it seems we already have some
changes and improvements to the interface in our 4.8.x development

So maybe it's better that I resend that patch with the actual plugin
code when we move back to 4.9.x. The other patches are valid and
actually more important at this point.
