This is something of a question of semantics.  Obviously at this point
Dominic doesn't have code that is a full replacement for OfflineIMAP, so
calling it "OfflineIMAP 7" would be rather confusing.

If/when he does produce a finished product, that has the features and
stability of what we have now and a migration path, then I'd be happy to
"bless" it as OfflineIMAP 7 and hand the maintainer mantle over to him.
