It might be a bit blue sky, but if this daemon could (optionally) talk
IMAP and translate tags into folders on the fly, this would be very
useful for people who need imap access to their mail as well as from an
custom notmuch client.

Of course it would be nice to be able to just drop a back-end into some 
well tested server that dealt with authentication and the imap protocol.

As long as we're tossing out projects :)
