The IMAP4rev1 specification allows for non-ASCII mailbox names using a
modified UTF-7 encoding (section 5.1.3 of RFC 2060 or 3501).  However,
the imaplib routines taking a mailbox name just pass the string straight
through without any encoding.

It would be useful if Python provided an encoder/decoder for the
modified UTF-7 encoding, and optionally if imaplib would perform the
encoding and decoding at the appropriate points.
