It will be the replacement for libgmail: not all libgmail developers
out there want to rewrite their programs from scratch, so a new,
backward-compatible libgmail based on IMAP does make sense IMHO.
I'm cc-ing the author of both the older libgmail, and the new
IMAP-based one, in case he wants to chime in.
