I replied to your assertion that ``Otherwise, I think we will in fact
be unable to distribute UW's IMAPD, and should never have done so in
the first place.''. We're not unable to distribute it, we'd just have
to distribute it in non-free.

And no, I'm not too concerned about it, I don't care about IMAP at all,
and I'm not overly worried about software being in non-free.
