bin/offlineimap and offlineimap.py are copies of the same file. There
were some people that wanted to just copy bin/offlineimap somewhere or
just run it from the untarred sourceball.
the reason for the version number both there and in version.py were to
ensure that people were getting the right version of the modules. Had
some people that would run the script but their python path would load
modules from a different version. Sorta a problem, that.
Whether the duplicate bin/offlineimap and version checks are needed is
perhaps no longer a given. Those date from the earliest days of
OfflineIMAP 8 years ago.
