P.S. I'm not looking for a complete roadmap, I can fill in most of the
Tags and UIDs are not a big deal.
What I want to do is get enough IMAP working that I can start testing

implementing some critical command last, and finding out that I made
some critical mistake very early in the process.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
