I think I'm learning this.  I gave up for the night after a few hours of 
trying to solve phoenix barfing and telling me what to do.  I'm probably
going to try the reverse.  Copy build.xml over build-imap.xml versus 
trying to solve all build-imap.xml's issues and try and figure out what 
needs to go in it to make it build the imap stuff.  This should 
be...educational...since I know nothing of phoenix (or to be precise, 
everything I ever read about it was in Latin).  ;-)

yes.  I'll look at it and report back.

Here is what I have to do to get it to work:
1. check out the 2.03a branch
2. muck with those (inc the normal) build files until they can actually 
find ant on unix as advertised (the docs and stuff LIE LIKE DOGS, I just 
don't know what of my tinkering actually worked)
3. update the proposals directory to the HEAD
   3b. optional: rm -rf build dist  (the target mentioned in the doc is 
4. Then follow the instructions (./build.sh -buildfile 

Then you can run the unit tests (./build.sh -buildfile 
proposals/imap/build-test.xml testimap)

The last few tests with fetch commands still fail, but the rest (that 
the unit tests test) seems rational and up to spec.  I'm even able to 
get the folders (more or less) with Ximian Evolution.

I don't think we're far off from basic bare bones functionality.  Just 
some attention to detail (getting the build to work).

At some point if I get stumped would you be willing to take some patches 
to the build, and see if you understand the phoenix issues its griping
