Reinventing the OfflineIMAP wheel

I just realized that by attempting to hack IDLE support around mbsync, I was basically reinventing OfflineIMAP.  Hurray me.

(I had actually considered OfflineIMAP when I was initially looking for an IMAP sync-er, but most of the comments out there painted it as a clunkier, buggier, unmaintained alternative.  After taking a second look, this doesn't seem to be the case, at least not in the current version.  I guess I'll have to give it a try and see for myself.)
