I would like to add some functionality to roundcube. 

1. The ability to check box to automatically sign in next time  or to 
just save the login.  The information would be stored in a cookie that 
expired in like 30 years,  if people on the development team think its 
ok to store the password it would be done in a hash obviously but 
everyone's imap/pop client would have to support the hash then.

2. For visually impaired people, have a selector for font size that 
simply changes the css or a high contrast theme.  I think it would also 
be neat to use flite (http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/flite/doc/index.html) 
for text to speech.  There would be a link that could be enabled which 
when clicked would let them save the message as a wav file, then play it 
back in audio form.  I already do this for captchas on my websites. I'm 
sure most visually impaired people already have software on their 
computer do this, but they are probably all windows people.  this could 
allow visually impaired people in linux or other less supported OSs to 
get an audio version of their email.   Some web applications sport a 
logo indicating compliance with http://www.section508.gov/.

3. GnUPG support, I would like to add the ability sign or encrypt 
messages.  A user could paste their private key into a form that then 
saved it on the server in sql.  There is probably a huge security issue 
with saving private keys on a server.  I don't know of a php API, I 
would most likely use exec();

Please email me any comments, questions or concerns.
