I could use some hint here, how do I push anything as a separate git
repository? Create new project on github?

Well, we'll see how Nicolas will like what I did. And I expect troubles
since I ... ehm ... wrote it ... ehm ... in ... perl and shell :) But
anyone knowing python well can rewrite it easily into python I think
(the perl code is 200+ lines)

Also it is not yet suitable for imap<->imap and maildir<->maildir
testing, but that's just a matter of improving the shell script
executing everything.
