Not pedantry!!!! You've been around long enough to know that the
access method is independent of the storage method.
Some IMAP servers (like uw-imap) store folders in mbox format, some
(like courier-imap) in Maildir, and some (like dovecot) in either.
And then there is Exchange Server, which has it's own proprietary
storage format. And $DEITY only knows how Google stores gmail data.
