IMAP over SSH port forward

Hi all,

  $ ssh -L 1143:morris:143 dwood@stallman.pisoftware.com
  $ sudo /usr/bin/redir --lport imap2 --caddr localhost --cport dummy-imap &
You should then be able to talk to localhost port 143, and see morris.

This is reasonably useful for anyone overseas, but only works if they
have an unrestricted account on stallman - ie, any of the sysadmins.
It should be possible to set up a dummy account that does something
