Dear Nicolas, sorry for missing the cc to the mailing list.

I assumed that two ends can be a "non local" maildir according to this
http://www.offlineimap.org/doc/use_cases.html part of the documentation
"Sync from GMail to another IMAP server"
and also here http://www.offlineimap.org/doc/features.html
"With OfflineIMAP 4.0, a powerful new ability has been introduced ― the
program can now synchronize two IMAP servers with each other, with no need
to have a Maildir layer in-between"

I am willing to test the behaviour and proceed carefully. Would you please
be so kind to point me in the right direction about NAMETRANS for gmail and
traditional IMAP servers (for nesting purpose?). To be true there is
nothing around which is comparable to offlineIMAP as an alternative..
