And probably one of my least accurate :-(

Well, as you have probably figured the patch doesn't really help...
Turns out that for some reason the test: (ImapUI.py)
            from imaplib import IMAP_SSL
        except ImportError:
            parm_list = list(parm_map)
            parm_list.remove(("imap", "use_ssl"))
            parm_map = tuple(parm_list)

fails on my machine... but, SSL still works! That is, when I specify
use_ssl=True it works, and uses SSL, but it is never shown in the web
front end.... I believe that the above test should be

            from imaplib import IMAP4_SSL

This is what sb_imapfilter.py imports, which is why I believe that it

I still think that the other patch has some utility, since (to me) the
descriptions are a little more accurate and informative.
