ok, so this is one more reason to strenghten the base on which the sync
process runs. offlineimap should be inspired from rsync. It offers many
parameters that can be used as base for syncing process.

I tried to look into the sources of offlineimap to add parameters such
as message-ID, Subject, dates, etc to add optionally as base for
syncing but i need some guidance to know which files should i look into
in priority.
