Yes, true, but wouldn't a lib have a cleaner interface so it'd be easier to
use than running a console front-end and working via stdin/out ?

Would be great if the proc/fetchmail guys could split up their code between
the lib and the frontend. I suppose it's not really worth the trouble for
them, is it?
