Well, what do people think? I came from the same viewpoint, but I came around 
to thinking password changing is big enough of a job to be seperated out. I 
don't think it should be in IMP; there are too many specifics. Here are the 4 
possibilities I see:

1. put in it Gollem. Max sees Gollem as a general account manager, 
handling .forwards, vacation, etc; password changing fits in reasonably well 
with those.

2. put password changing right into Horde.

3. put it into its own app.

4. take all of the account-management stuff (vacations, forwards, passwords) 
out of Gollem and make all of them into their own app, leaving Gollem just to 
do ftp.

Listing them out that way, I'd go for #1 or #4. Let the discussion rage.
