Now is the time to look at
<http://gitorious.org/fetchmail/fetchmail/blobs/master/NEWS#line42> and
speak up if any important feature was abolished.  I have not obsoleted
features younger than, say, 10 years, yet, so we should have few
complaints about 7.0.0-alpha4 over 6.3.24. :)

Note that I expect MAPI support to _NOT_ materialize in spite of a
Google Summer of Code contribution, due to lack of support from the
contributor and the audience.
