STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com> added the comment:
The server can send raw 8 bits email in any charset (charset is
specified in the email headers). That's why I think that it's better
to keep bytes instead of the unicode conversion using a fixed charset.
Each email can use a different charset.
Types used in my new patch:
* IMAP commands (charset=ASCII)
* untagged_responses keys (charset=ASCII)
* tagre attribute
* untagged_responses values
I chooosed to keep unicode for some variables to minimize the changes
in imaplib library and to keep readable code.
- Remove the assert (added for quicker debugging)
- Test more functions
- Restore _checkquote() in _command() method or use
_quote()/_checkquote() in method which need it. login() already quote
the password (but why not the login?)
I also wrote a patch for a "pure bytes string" version, but the patch
is complex, long and the resulting module source code is hard to read.
