With the "wisdom" accrued over the years, I feel it's time to completely 
rewrite the IMAP backend. We now have features I didn't have back when I 
started it: better parsers, async, better testing and new IMAP servers.

This crate by @duesee is the most potential candidate for the rewrite: 
<https://github.com/duesee/imap-codec>. Usually I implement stuff myself 
but it'd never reach `imap-codec`'s level.

The motivations for the rewrite are:

- unit test EVERYTHING
- redesign backend to lazily load messages instead of entire mailboxes; 
  therefore improving performance.
- increase compatibility with more IMAP server implementations.

I'd like to hear your thoughts, if there are any.

Just realized I replied to Manos directly instead of via the list.

Sounds good! 

I was able to get melib to lazy load messages in my patches, but I was not able to lazy load attachments too.

I would be happy to help out with some integration tests, either with green mail or some other tool.
