Mostly because I don't want to hide all the workarounds that have been 
required for clients. Microsoft may not ever fix Outlook, but other 
client implementors might see what bugs others have had, and make sure 
they won't have at least the same bugs.

Maybe outlook-idle workaround could be enabled by default. Hmm. I guess 
I'll do that.
