In theory Tramp could get an imap: method that would store a file in a
message on an IMAP server.  I tried to make this work but a chronic
shortage of time has impeded me.  If this worked, it would be nice for
.newsrc, .bbdb, and many other files.

My idea was to make the file name part of the subject line in some
standard format.  Multiple identical subject lines get sorted by date
and only the latest is used, providing a sort of version control
