You guys have really been committing like crazy recently! A while ago I
counted 172 of the 267 commits done since the previous release to concern one
or more email protocols!

Personally I've not found that to be much of a problem with the existing
tests. As long as the <info> tag specify the protocol properly,
can filter out specific tests/protocols (and so can grep).

But sure, it makes things slightly easier at times.

I certainly don't mind. I'm happy there are more tests pending! =)
