Well, it requires a few changes it seems. Another related problem is
that with mbox we should hide some of the message headers, with current
code that'd messy and slow. I've also thought about supporting SQL
databases to store mails, but a bit too much of the logic is index
file-specific now.

So, time for a cleanup to fix all these at once. FETCH and SEARCH are
the only commands whose logic should be moved, after that the
lib-storage won't have hardly any IMAP specific features anymore. Any
other protocols that we could support? :)
