There is a tool which can sync IMAP mailboxes and MH folders, called
"Mailsync".  It's orphaned (last release in 2004) and has been described
as "horrible".  It uses c-client, but is itself written in C++.  I have
never used it, but in theory it might do what you want.


(This is one of those cases that just screams out for native IMAP support
in nmh.  Sigh.  One day).
