Well, that sounds highly non-trivial and delicate to do right, all for a
corner case involving fewer and fewer people anyway ...

BTW, why are those UsefulIMAPWhatever empty classes needed now that this
last hack is on the way out ? It looks like using UsefulIMAPMixIn
directly in WrappedIMAP4 and others would be simpler ?
