Hi Denton, great to know you appreciate it :)

It's still in the early stages and there still seems to be a
problem where it still interacts badly with mutt's header cache.
Maybe checking over the old HTTPS/NNTPS endpoints once in a
while if things appear too quiet is a good idea while I shake
out some bugs.

I'm dreading the cost of ~100K RAM/storage overhead per-client
connection to support sequence numbers properly...

OK, that ought to be fixed and I found what seems to be an
acceptable solution w.r.t. server-side overhead:
https://public-inbox.org/meta/20200612234924.GA31809@dcvr/

I've also just deployed a recursive descent parser for which is
hopefully compliant with the way IMAP search queries are parsed:
https://public-inbox.org/meta/20200616050540.13357-3-e@yhbt.net/

One of the annoyances of read-only IMAP is MUAs (unlike
newsreaders) lack the ability to store status flags for
new/unread messages.  I've got some ideas to deal with that on
the client-side...

Aha, I noticed last night when I was using it that it seemed much
snappier! I can also confirm on my end that your patch works and it
makes the experience much better.

Thanks again!
