Thanks for working on this.

It may not be feasible to get imap working with rmail in time for Emacs
23.1; better to finish up the mbox support, to give enough time for
testing/bugfixes.  How long do you want to wait before replacing the old
rmail?  Say, a couple of weeks?

I would suggest making the switch sooner rather than later, so that it
gets as much testing as possible.
