I've had pretty good experience using other IMAP-based clients with
Gnus.  On one account, I use nnml, but I can read the incoming spool
with pine or mutt before I have Gnus sort it; on another, I use
straight-up nnimap.  The one thing I need to change is the IMAP
predicate (either nnimap-split-predicate or the :predicate in my IMAP
mail-source) so that Gnus will still sort read mail out of the IMAP
INBOX, but if you don't use Gnus splitting that's less of a concern.
