problem with nametrans

I have run into some problems with nametrans. First one involves gmail 
and the All Mail folder - I want to have it locally as 'archive' and 
translate it properly back to gmail. Here is relevant part of my config:

[Repository gmail_local]
sep  = .
nametrans = lambda folder: re.sub('spam', '[Google Mail].Spam',
                            re.sub('drafts', '[Google Mail].Drafts',
                            re.sub('sent', '[Google Mail].Sent Mail',
                            re.sub('bin', '[Google Mail].Bin',
                            re.sub('archive', '[Google Mail].All Mail', 

[Repository gmail_remote]
nametrans = lambda folder: re.sub('.*Spam$', 'spam',
                            re.sub('.*Drafts$', 'drafts',
                            re.sub('.*Sent Mail$', 'sent',
                            re.sub('.*Bin$', 'bin',
                            re.sub('.*All Mail$', 'archive', folder)))))

With the above config all folders apart from the 'All Mail' are synced 
properly both ways - the 'All Mail' is ignored. I tried changing 'All 
Mail' to simply 'All' but that didn't solve it. Could someone point me 
in the right direction?

My second problem is with my other account - here is the relevant 
[Repository m_local]
sep = /
nametrans = lambda folder: re.sub('spam', 'INBOX.Junk',
                            re.sub('drafts', 'INBOX.Drafts',
                            re.sub('sent', 'INBOX.Sent',
                            re.sub('bin', 'INBOX.Trash', folder)))))

[Repository m_remote]
nametrans = lambda folder: re.sub('.*Junk$', 'spam',
                            re.sub('.*Drafts$', 'drafts',
                            re.sub('.*Sent$', 'sent',
                            re.sub('.*Trash$', 'bin', folder)))))

Issue concerns 'lists/offlineimap' - it is syncing OK both way but 
locally I'm ending up not only with 'lists/offlineimap' but with 
'INBOX/lists' as well. Is it possible to somehow skip the creation of 
'INBOX/lists' locally?
