I just found out that the gmail servers don't support connections on
the standard pop3/imapv4 ports, but only on the SSL wrapped ones.

I'm unsure if cmu.edu anonymous imap server admin's would be happy with
their server becoming python's official imap/pop testing playground;
still, I just verified it does support TLS upgrades both for pop3 and imap
and anonymous (read-only) logins.

I think I could cook-up something.
