OK, from what I have been able to learn (not a lot),
my original question may boiled down to:
has anyone wrapped the cclient library for Python?

The answer to that appears to be yes:

Will I need to pursue this, or is this functionality
somewhere in the mailbox module.  (And if not,
can someone please explain why not?)
