I dont know if it requires many changes. The reply-parsing code in
monet.pm looks quite 'unstable' to me; I have not found the problem yet.
In my opinion it would be better to base programming language APIs on
the existing libMapi C code. That way protocol changes etc. only need to
be implemented in a single place...
Anyway I do not think I have much time to look further into this, I have
a thesis to finish ;-)
