Are you thinking about simple proxying, so that if you switch to
mailbox1 it would do a connection to server1 which would completely
handle it, so that until next SELECT/EXAMINE is done the proxy would
just do dummy proxying?

Maybe something like that would work, but I'm not very interested in
doing it. Also it would limit some features that could be made available
(e.g. virtual mailboxes wouldn't work with it). There are many more
interesting things that can be done with a smarter proxy.
