Well, please accept my sincere apologies.  I guess I've been burned too
many times about people arguing about IMAP, I had not realized that you
had actually done Real Work on it.

Please understand, I have no religious objection to a native IMAP
implementation; I would actually like that to happen.  But as you no
doubt know, the work involved is ... not small.
