[PATCH] folder/Base: remove waitforthread() method

waitforthread() is currently used in folder/IMAP.py only and redefined in it. It
doesn't make sense to have a dump definition in the Base class.

It's probably the first cleanup for a longer cleanup suites consisting in
checking all these base objects against inherithed.
I think that bases don't have to define everything.
