I couldn't try it because it appears that the Python that comes with
Debian is still too old. Also, my one IMAP account relies on SSL so I
think I'd need to set up SSL tunnel or something. However, I definitely
will try it later.

For what it's worth, I think this is definitely the right approach
for getting IMAP to work with MH. It avoids cluttering the rest of
the MH code and solves the issue of allowing the IMAP connection to be
maintained. Also, FUSE has now been ported elsewhere so it mightn't be
to much of a Linux specific solution in the long term.
