Well, the main reason I wrote OfflineIMAP was because I loved the
features of Gnus, but considered it too slow and buggy to use, I'm
probably not going to be using it again anytime soon :-)

Unless it is really easy to support nnmaildir... (I really don't kow
how it works; if it's only trivially different than what we do now, that
would be doable.)

Python is not hard to learn; if you already grok a couple of programming
languages, especially object-oriented ones, you can probably pick it up
in an hour or two.  Grokking Twisted and IMAP actually take longer, I
think.  :-)

In fact, I dare say it's probably the easiest language I've learned yet.
