Nothing wrong with it. We don't need to build it by default, we just
need to get our Debian maintainer to get it right. Just as fine. I'll
drop the patch.

@John, have you seen ?

Something in debian/* needs modification to actually build and include
our man page in the debian package. Would that be somehow possible?

While you are it, 6.3.3 is out ;-). BTW, I hope you don't mind me
closing offlineimap bugs in Debian if I think they can be closed.
