I think for the purpose of ensuring that we're compatible with actual
IMAP and not "MSIMAP" (probably a tm) having Mozilla or Eudora, etc
should be the guiding principal for judging this.  

This is however far less important to me than the unit tests issue.  I think they are
essential to a high quality IMAP implementation and I'm not apt to waste
my time creating low quality anything.
