You can always find broken scenarios, if you want to find them. In the special
case you describe, I would suggest just to show both folders with the same
name. Since the internal name is different, imp does not have a problem with

A question to native english speakers: If the INBOX would not be called INBOX
but XY6RT2, would you like to explain your users, that XY6RT2 is defined in the
imap protocol and is a reserved name, and it means "Inbox" and they have to get
used to it? 

I think if this change makes 90% of users of a localized imp happy, and 10% have
a folder with the same name or do not understand why INBOX is gone, it is worth
