It seems to me there are two IMAP-related things people have wanted:

  1) Have nmh commands act on IMAP-stored messages.

  2) Expose an nmh folder via IMAP.

#1 would let you use nmh against arbitrary IMAP accounts. #2 would
let you access your existing nmh storage over IMAP. I think both would
be neat, but the one I really want is #2.

I looked this over a bit and wasn't able to satisfy myself as to what
OfflineIMAP would do.
