This plugin is based on a patch I found for roundcube 0.3 a long time ago.

Since roundcube is now able to handle the labels without modification of its source I decided to create a plugin.

There exists a "Tags plugin for RoundCube" which does something similar, my plugin emulates thunderbirds behaviour better I think (coloring the message rows for example)
