Yes, this is definitely something that should be done, especially since the
vast majority of the web interface code is shared among them anyway.  I had
made this change locally, but didn't ever commit it since I wanted to sort
out the rest, but couldn't figure out how :)

IMAP Server's interface version can be dumped; it doesn't really use the web
interface at all anymore (just for configuration, and even that will go).  I
had originally made a new 'application', which was the interface, and both
sb_server and sb_imapfilter referred to that.  It does seem that the
interface may change significantly without sb_server or sb_imapfilter doing
so (in fact, sb_server hardly changes at all anymore, but the interface
changes lots).  But you can just kill it if you think that's better.
