I think it's a great idea.

One thing to think about, I've been watching the cyrus list for
ideas about what isn't done well, and I think there isn't a great way
to copy imap folder from one server to another (if you aren't allowed
to just copy the underlying database). I think there are folks who
would really like a way to copy mail in such a way that all the flags
(such as marked, and deleted) are copied as well.
