I'll add IDLE to pre-login capabilities if I really have to, but that's probably going to be the only exception, no other post-login capabilities will be added there. And I'd prefer not to add IDLE either, because it's the best way to find clients that can't handle changing capabilities and then get them fixed.

I talked to Profimail previously and they were extremely helpful.  In 
particular I requested support for the COMPRESS extension and they 
emailed me back a new version about 24 hours later

Suggest drop them a line in the first instance? (You could check that 
the COMPRESS stuff made it into the released build also since Timo 
kindly added support for that to 2.0)
