[Imap-protocol] MUTF7, UTF8, and Unicode flags

I suggest that if the IMAP server advertises RFC6855 support you use that,
if not you just use UTF8 for both mailbox names and flags (ie. exactly as
6855, but undeclared). If/when you run into problems you add mUTF7 support.
If you're lucky you can avoid mUTF7 ;)

I can provide an account on a 6855-capable server if you want to test that.
