While I'm not qualified to answer your main question (although I've wondered
about the same thing myself), I can say that I don't really think your match
of perspectives to mail folders (or directories, whatever) really makes
sense, since there is normally only one Perspective per connection to a
service. There should probably be a "mailbox" perspective, with references
to each mail folder.

BTW, are you actually planning to have a mail-through-PB protocol, for
end-user's clients to use? That would be pretty neat, and we could kill
IMAP. =)
