Monkeypatch imap class: Escape quotes and braces in envelope Subject


I have a broken IMAP-Server which violates the imap protocol. I want to
migrate my mails. I worked with the ruby larch program to overcome the
discapabilities of my server.

The only thing which is left to do is to properly escape " and ( )
characters in the mail envelope. I had to do some kind of monkey patch
here I think, because I had to look, whether the character is a envelope
separator or if its just malencoded in the subject attribute (one could
use the comma to verify that).

My server throws

/usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/net/imap.rb:3277:in parse_error': unexpected token QUOTED (expected SPACE) (Net::IMAP::ResponseParseError) from /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/net/imap.rb:3129:inmatch’
