That's my bad.  I hastily copied text from my guide that Sebastian
already mentioned.  The node is supposed to illustrate the principle.
You should set pythonfile to your personal pythonfile where you can
implement your own functions.  It should not apply that implementaions
come with the doc of offlineimap (although they could).  I'll make a
patch as soon as find the time (maybe tonight).
