That's ok, I think it was from frustration, parsing stuff like below
to only know how many parts in a message is annoying at best:

* 1 FETCH (BODY ((("TEXT" "PLAIN" ("CHARSET" "US-ASCII") "<address@hidden>" N
IL "8BIT" 13 1)("TEXT" "PLAIN" ("CHARSET" "US-ASCII") "<address@hidden>" NIL
"8BIT" 13 1) "MIXED")("TEXT" "PLAIN" ("CHARSET" "US-ASCII") "<address@hidden>
" NIL "8BIT" 12 1)("TEXT" "PLAIN" ("CHARSET" "US-ASCII") NIL NIL "7BIT" 0 0) "MI

and frankly @*&$&(#^ when some quote strings ("") can be broke to be a
literals,... grr.  I did the parsing for the client side (mailbox library),
not totally satisfy with the end result.

Looking at imap4d/*, I was less then "enthousiastic"(sp?) to do the exercise.
It will probably be less painfull but this time I would prefer a cleaner way.
I do not know if Jakob had something in mind, when he wrote the first
framework for imap4d/*.[ch]

au revoir, alain
