I'm very interested, with both my James and Vysper hats on.
I was just beginning to think about how ro play back XMPP commands in
an elegant way for functional testing.
But XMPP might go way beyond what is needed here with mail-related
protocols. For example since XMPP is based on XML, it also has the
variations of XML: two commands are the same, even if for example
attributes come in different order. RegEx might not help here anymore
while IMAP might be fine with using them.
