My reading was that the javax.mail.Folder is clean.  The problem is
that some key public methods com.sun.mail.imap.IMAPFolder do not have 
corresponding methods in a javax.mail.* interface.  

The net result is that someone trying to access the "IMAP ACL extension" 
functionality cannot avoid using vendor specific APIs.  The same applies
to other IMAP functionality and to functionality in the other providers.

Someone ought to report this to Sun as a defect in the JavaMail 1.3
APIs.  The APIs have not been touched since JSR 919 in 2002!
