Oh wow, that's not a small amount of work.
I really wish we had the 'imap protocol' bits factored out a bit more
internally. I can sort of see how to make all those bits work, and
being able to interoperate is good -- but it's a lot of work!
I think we would accept a P-IMAP server into the tree if somebody wrote
one in a way that isn't too invasive to the rest of IMAP, and would
help out with building it - but it's not on the immediate roadmap.
