Indeed.  I imagine that there will be a new Outlook plug-in release
soon, too, and it's nice when they come out at similar times.  (Although
Mark's up to 8, and we're up to 5 ;).

I'd actually like to see 1.0b1, though.  In terms of the API, we must be
pretty stable now, right?  Except that if we are going to do the
renaming thing (as proposed by Greg), we should probably do that (really
the sooner the better if we are going to, even if we are still at

I think we should also catch the 'no dbm available' traceback (I can't
remember the wording) and replace it with a nice error for (at least)
pop3proxy users, so that those using dumbdbm don't flood us with "1.0a5
doesn't work" messages.

If you don't, I can probably do this.
