But I don't want to set the defaults for everything.  I want to define a
remote repository and a local repository (both IMAP servers in my case)
and have one account section per user, with usernames and passwords in
each section.  Not being familiar with Python, I have no idea how
difficult this would be to implement.  If you can point me in the
direction of the config parser, I can start hacking my way though it.

Just out of curiosity, would this option be of any use to anyone else on
this list?
