the right position in subversion is a topic we should return to

the reasoning behind james/protocol/imap was that it allowed a group
of protocols library to be built up if they are factored out from the
main server. i'm keen on this idea: i think that it offers easier
maintenance in the long run, reduces pressure on server releases
(individual protocol libraries have separate release cycles) and
reduces the quantity of code that a new developer needs to learn to
start contributing. however, i'm not sure how convinced other people
were by this approach.

an alternative argument is that IMAP has quite a complex internal
module structure and that it's neater and more consistent to just add
new protocols at the top level under james without the internal
