No, I don't expect an option for the imaplib2 migration but we might
split the IDLE feature into finer grained pieces (imaplib2/IDLE?).

Notice we don't have timeline based releases. Merging both APENDUID and
IDLE in a release with a have longer -rc is fine. I don't think APENDUID
should have a stable release for its own unless I'm missing something.
If so, I ask to be convinced.  I'd rather merge topics while working
heavily on them.
