Based on /usr/share/doc/imap/copyright on ftoomsh, it looks BSDish. Ooh, and
this version of IMAP also supports Maildir. I recommend we mandate that
too. All-out mail reform! ;-) Kidding. I just think we should keep pine, and
not nag about it.

I'm not entirely sure what the Debian people wanted to modify in the Pine
source. The unmodified source compiles and runs fine both on ftoomsh and on
my home (x86) box. Either way, modified versions have to have an "L" on the
end of the version number, and the documentation and release notes have to
say what I did. No big deal.

I don't know for the newer versions but unless they've broken something I
think we can assume it does, because 4.21 is running fine on Progsoc boxen
