Binding for Google's Gmail service, includes FTP, POP, SMTP & archive functions.

The `libgmail` project is a pure Python binding to provide access to Google's Gmail web-mail service. The library currently ships with a demonstration utility to archive messages from a Gmail account into mbox files, suitable for importing into a local email client. Also includes a demonstration utility that acts as a SMTP proxy to allow mail to be sent from any standard mail client that uses SMTP (e.g., Mozilla etc). New demonstration utility acts as a POP3 proxy to allow mail to be retrieved from any standard mail client that uses POP3 (e.g., Mozilla etc). Features demonstration utility to provide access to Gmail message attachments via a download-only FTP proxy--this allows retrieval of suitably marked attachments by a standard FTP client. Utilize more of your Gmail space!
