Hi Eygene,

thanks for the patches and very sorry for my non-response time. I kind
of suffered an email breakdown for a few weeks, but I should be back
now and am in the process of catching up.

I have applied the first patch. Thanks.

for this one, I would suggest that you send it directly to the imaplib2
list, because I would prefer to bundle an unmodified upstream version if
possible at all. I'm copying in the imaplib2 list in this reply, so
let's see if the imaplib2 maintainer takes it.
