In a plugin, what would trigger a check for new messages? I haven't 
explored the plugin capabilities yet, so I don't know what the potential 
is. I fear checking after every imap command may be a worse problem than 
some users not getting the messages. That does make me wonder if dovecot 
processes should have a maximum life setting though...

Also, is there a document for the plugin API somewhere? As in how to 
write your own... I haven't found such a thing in the wiki, just the 
existing plugins themselves.
