Others have given imap solutions -- I'm using POP and the mpop utility
works great for this. I have it use `set-process-filter' and
`set-process-sentinel' to let me know what it did once it's done.

Again, for POP -- nnmairix is fast, but I've gotten strange behavior out
of the virtual groups it creates, and calling it from gnus is many times
slower than using it from the command line.
