Sorry I wanted to reply to you other mail but postponed it for too long ):

The only differences between iceape and seamonkey are the names, icons and 
some documentation references. The enigmail and enigmime packages are only 
missing because I disabled them. And I did that because AFAIK they do not 
work at all. If you could actually use features from those packages with 
seamonkey 2.0.x please tell and I'll re-enable them.

Anyway I hope I can get them to work and enable them soon since enrypted 
and signed mail is an important feature IMHO. I doubt the "old" packages 
will cause any problems in the meantime.

The real problem is that the enigmail extensions do not work when 
packaged. At least you reminded me I should take another look at that.
