I've pushed this as commit 9281be36d5206f although tidied up the commit
comments and changed your email details to those you posted to the list as.

This is how we coded the initial version of the IMAP changes back in
December but went for the code you see in the main repo in March as it

1) We don't have to have a separate handler, response function and state for
custom requests
2) It is in keeping with how custom requests are implemented for other
protocols such as HTTP and POP3 where the custom request shadows another

I appreciate there is an argument for doing the way you proposed, as like I
mentioned, this is how we originally coded it - I am open but thoughts from
others on the list would be appreciated.

Kind Regards
