Let me make a somewhat more radical suggestion: if inetlib implements
the needed ACL support, how about switching to use it exclusively?

It does; the relevant IMAPConnection methods are setacl, deleteacl, getacl, listrights, myrights.

It wouldn't be too much trouble to implement higher-level wrappers in IMAPFolder if working with them is conceptually easier, though. Also, as I mentioned before, JavaMail and JAF provide a whole MIME implementation that may be convenient.
