That would be a great thing to do :) You could have total control over
the IMAP world by getting out a *good* IMAP client ;) And since it's Qt,
a lot of users (X11, OS X, Windows, soon Nokia smartphones?) could profit.

On the other hand, maybe all efforts should concentrate on Akonadi [1],
which will do IMAP for KDE in the (near?) future... says a KDE user :)
