My reading of it at the time was something like "There are no clients 
that support this.  We don't understand the need"

Now that there is at least one large client (I'm presuming that IOS does 
support it?) I think the world has changed and of course the patch has 
now had large scale testing (since I'm presuming again that it's 
included in the Apple distributed Postfix version?)

I personally think that the idea is perfect and I would like to see it 
break into mainstream use and from there I think we will possibly see 
support added to additional clients (I think this is how to break the 
chicken/egg cycle).  The idea that you can use IMAP commands to 
construct a message server side from "bits of other messages", and then 
post it out server side is fantastic.

Please consider having at least one more go.  I think there is likely to 
be much better reception now that clients exist, the patch is well 
tested and Dovecot at least supports the IMAP side. Please...?
