There has never been talk about making the php script a disconnected
imap client (which it essentially is if it has a local cache of imap
ID<->SID relations). I'd rather not implement this because it is going
to be a) error-prone, and b) quite an effort. And it doesn't solve the
problem for the webclient, which is still online imap and faces exactly
the same trouble as the invitation handling script.
