Heh, fair enough ... but I've done the same steps trans-Pacific, and it
wasn't terrible.  At least inc wasn't the big problem.

Well, yes, there's interest.

I've always found it weird that if you ask five nmh users about IMAP support
for nmh, you get 5 different answers as to what they think that means.

While I think "normal" IMAP for nmh is relatively straightforward to do,
what I _think_ you're describing would be hard.  It sounds like the best thing
you could do is create some sort of rsync for IMAP, that would sync your
nmh folders to your IMAP folders.  Even then I would think you'd still need
to do some work on the nmh side to make it work out right.

This is not the first time someone has talked about this, but no one has yet
stepped forward with actual code.  So there's interest, but no code.
