Yes, that would be ideal.  But when the server doesn't implement the
standard properly, what else are we to do?

Sure, and someday pigs will fly as MS ships a perfectly conformant
IMAP server implementation.

Sure, I can understand your frustration, but I'm hoping this won't be
a big problem to fix.  I think that maybe the change could be
localized to vm-imap.el with a variable that us poor suffering fools
would have to use, which restricts FLAGS.SILENT usage when stupid
servers are in the loop.

Maybe I'll be able to whip up a test patch later on to see how it

Quick question though, how is the best way to force VM to re-read
vm-imap.el as I'm hacking away on it?  load-library?
