Hmm, so you kind of need MailMate to map the $Label1-5 IMAP keywords to 
a different set of keywords when using this server (such that the rest 
of MailMate thinks the server supports them). That's a very 
user-specific feature, but if other/many users need it or someone is 
willing to pay for my time to implement it then it wouldn't, 
technically, be a problem :)

Going one step further -- *if* the tags are mutually exclusive then 
`$Label1-$Label5` could be used to support 31 tags (using them as a bit 
pattern. Oh, the beautiful world of weird workarounds for IMAP servers
