I'd vote strongly in favor of changes in that direction. Just ran into a
situation where I was unable to do what I wanted for lack of shell access.
Fortunately my provider was willing to do it for me, free; but I'd much
rather be able to do it myself. I've run into the inability to delete
messages from the archive in the past--in that case, a message with
offensive language that we wanted removed.
