just as an aside, if you'll let me:

  What kind of effort would be involved to ultimately be able to drop the uw-
imap / php-imap annotations and myrights patches?

I'm asking, because making uw-imap / php-imap compatible with RFCs 4314, 5257, 
5464, and others currently implemented or others to be implemented Soon 
Enough(tm), may conclude to be way more work and of higher difficulty.

Be it dropping horde3 in favor of horde4, be it modifying horde3, be it 
anything else, I'm open to suggestions ;-)

Kind regards,
