Sorry but I won't. Piers retracted his offer. We had private discussions
about that and we couldn't find a consensus on some terms.

Of course, we are free to fork the library but it would ask manpower for
the development tasks. It may worth in the long term as we would have
more internal knowledge of our core library.

So, unless people come with patches for imaplib2 knowing that I'm open
to take the maintainance work, we will stick to the current project.
