You can use the "moveto=FOLDER" clause in the imap url.  It causes each
message to be moved to FOLDER on the mail server, after successful
download.  This way the message continues to be available from the
server and at the same time won't be downloaded again.  Example usage:

  movemail 'imap://user@mail.example.com;moveto=archived' ~/mailbox

(notice quoting the first argument).  In this example all downloaded
messages will be available in the folder 'archived' on 'mail.example.com'.

As a side note, after a bit of thinking about your proposal I came up
with a couple of solutions that I'm going to implement in future
releases.  They're rather vague for the moment and need good polishing.
I'll let you know when I have something palpable.
