This is interesting.  I am currently using a Perl module (IMAP::Admin)
to build a customized mail server management front-end.  Currently, the
separator must be specified as an argument to the module class
instantiator.  This would make much more sense to have it determined at
runtime.  I know it is not announced in the CAPABILITY in my setup.  How
can we retrieve it ?

Thanks !
