At the moment I'm still in lurk mode, trying to get a feel for the
Twisted way of doing things.

I have been thinking about unified messaging. One of the next steps for
Hep is a unified protocol/address setup so it can transparently route
messages between different systems.  For example, I want Hep users to be
able to send mail to "bob at aim.hep" and have the message go to the AOL IM
account "bob".

There are a couple of servers I'd like to use that aren't available in
Twisted yet (to the best of my knowledge) - IMAP and WebDAV.  Is anyone
working on implementing these?  If so, I'd be happy to help.
