"Yes, but...."

1) If the MH community has nothing to do with the implementation, what's going 
to assure that the IMAP filesystem looks like something that MH can use 
easily. Isn't it just as likely that whoever implements it would make it look 
like Maildir++?

2) An IMAP filesystem is only going to be implemented if there's a community 
with a need.  Have any other communities out there expressed a need for an 
IMAP file system?  In particular, have any of them expressed a need for an 
IMAP file system that looks like an MH tree?

It seems unlikely to me that such a filesystem will be implemented unless the 
MH community is involved.
