See, it's this attitude that makes me say repeatedly, "If you want to
do IMAP in nmh, just do it and commit it before anyone finds out".  It's
the only way it will happen; if people just _talk_ about it, all of
the naysayers will start screaming and the interested party will go
away, as it's happened a half-dozen times before.

(I think I've seen 3-4 different architectures for doing IMAP in nmh, all
completely different.  Clearly people have very different ideas on how
IMAP should work).
