Interesting.  Looks active, as I see commits today.

So, is the basic idea to have the user interface to nmh operate
via all the same nmh commands and present a folder view to the
user.?  But, the message storage would move into an IMAP form,
possibly manipulated by OfflineIMAP?  If so, it sounds like nmh
could need a lot of refactoring to funnel the nmh <--> IMAP 
interchanges through the smallest reasonable number of functions.
A companion set of functions could be maintained to continue with
the MH storage format.

Thanks for the reference....
