IMAP/COMPRESS support in Archiveopteryx

The COMPRESS extension provides simple zip/deflate compression for IMAP connections. It can reduce the bandwidth needs of an IMAP connection by as much as 80%, although 70% is more common.

COMPRESS is mostly supported by mobile email readers. It is part of the LEMONADE group of extensions. Archiveopteryx was the first server to implement it.
