I'm planning on implementing "IMAP client" backend for lib-storage, which means you could create namespaces that are proxied to remote IMAP server. Or even make Dovecot act as a caching IMAP proxy for your real IMAP server.

I guess it could be possible to implement lib-storage backend for these too. :) Or maybe create some new simpler protocol that you can easily implement for them, and then create a lib-storage backend for that.
