Hi Ethan,

I can't say what Nicolas will prefer, but I just wanted to say that I
look forward to having that functionality in offlineimap.

I was a bit sceptical at first about bundling a python library locally,
but I agree that this is likely to be the best strategy as long as we
keep the vanilla version of imaplib to make updating it easy.
