Yep, I tested python's netrc a bit this morning, and it definitely
squashes entries for the same machine using the last entry (in my quick
test). It seems you are right that 2 accounts on the same machine won't
work with netrc (unless you use machine aliases or
whatnot). Fortunately, there are 5 different ways on how to specify
passwords to offlineimap, so there are alternatives.
