MessageSet is iterable; you can say "for uid in MessageSet: doStuff()".
You have to set MessageSet.last yourself though if it wasn't specified
by the client; set it to the value of the last uid (or sequence ID)
if not messageSet.last: messageSet.last = self.getUIDNext()-1
will probably do the trick.

You can look at the Hep IMAP server code here:
It might be a little hard to understand as it's using the Hep server and
Yarn to translate between IMAP and other protocols, but hopefully you'll
find it helpful.
