New submission from Robert T McQuaid:

imaplib does not run under Python 3.

The following two-line python program, named testimap.py,
works when run from a Windows XP system shell prompt
using Python 2.5.1, but fails with Python 3.0.  It
appears that the logic does not follow the distinction
between characters and bytes in Python 3.

import imaplib

e:\python25\python   testimap.py
e:\python30\python   testimap.py 2>f:syserr

The last line produced the trace:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "testimap.py", line 10, in <module>
