The trouble is that we're doing more than isbg does.  For one, isbg
doesn't do any training.  We're also doing things more 'correctly' -
copying the message's original datestamp and flags, for example, plus
finding the uid of the moved message, so that we keep it in our records
(isbg would simply retrain it).  Plus the whole UI business.

The more we interact with the IMAP server, the higher the possibility
that something will go wrong.

One of these days, of course, you'll be able to say that the latest
version of spambayes worked fine out of the box :)
