Summary: Add IDLE support for IMAP

Initial Comment:
It would be very useful if the imap filter could use
the IDLE support of LDAP on the folders that it
monitors for new messages.

The IDLE command is fairly standard amongst IMAP servers,
although there are varying degrees of support. Cyrus and
Exchange both have very good support for it, as do courier,
binc, and dovecot. However, with the last three it also
requires a bit of OS support for decent efficiency since
they do not use their own internal database.

I'm not sure what this feature is; could you elaborate or
point to a link?  (If it's a non-standard IMAP feature, then
the chances of implementing it is low - the IMAP filter is
complicated enough trying to support all the standard ways
that IMAP can work).
