Yes, but I was thinking we could do it a bit more easily by changing the
behavior to be different from UW-IMAP, as long as Pine worked with it. I
don't think the reply above would necessarily be against IMAP spec,
because it would be correct for visible namespaces.

It does if the first reply returned ~/. That's why I wanted it to make
return ~/mail directly so I wouldn't have to create LIST matching for
namespace prefixes too :)
Did you try if the patch in previous mail happened to work? If not, I
guess I'll have to add that prefix-LISTing code..
