This is indeed interesting! Also I guess, you can do the same for IMAP and it 
will work, and probably you can populate the list of IMAP folders too.

Now, since its working for you on the Mac, there is probably something 
in the #ifdefs between Mac and GNUstep. So, worth looking. Since 
is "old" code, and GNUstep probably got a lot more compatible over the time, 
it seems to be feasible investigating getting rid of those #ifdefs.
