Yes... you read that right.  Convert IMAP library to be 
multi-threaded, using pthreads.

Move socket connection code to a separate thread, so that we can do 
things like tokenize incoming stream and build objects while waiting 
for the IMAP server to finish processing/sending data.

have it architectured in a way that we could possibly have BOTH 
options by separating server processing from network protocol stuff
