public-inbox-pop3d (and -netd) gives us POP3 support, and
it seems to work.  Proxy support can come independently,
probably after JMAP.

public-inbox-netd provides the multi-protocol "super server"
which allows code memory savings.  Work is ongoing to further
reduce memory use...

Automatically updating on TLS cert and key changes on
inotify/EVFILT_VNODE won't be done, since (IMHO) there's too
much risk of inadvertent updates on incomplete changes.
My same train-of-thought applies to auto-reloading on config
file changes: an admin may save a file halfway through a
multi-step change and auto-reloading can be too surprising and
break things.

I don't think lei+FUSE will be as portable or useful as a
local IMAP server (and maybe JMAP, eventually); but r/w IMAP
support would be nice..

Finally, git SHA-256 repo support will need to be taken into
account.
