Hi Ethan and Richard,

I am a Whonix (anonymity OS) dev. Seeing your excellent efforts in 
uplifting privacy and security enhancements from TBB to upstream I 
wanted to discuss an idea with you.

Lavabit [1] the service that shutdown to protect its users from the 
government is relaunching their service with a redesigned private email 
protocol called DIME that protects metadata. The DIME spec [2] was 
written by Lavabit's Ladar Levison and Phil Zimmerman of PGP fame.

I propose that client side DIME support be implemented in the browser to 
enable widespread adoption of this enhanced protocol. This will do more 
to spread this than a standalone client ever would. Please share your 
thoughts on this.
