Autoconfig specs

It kind of already does, in that it will show 
one IMAP and one POP3 server, if you have both listed.
I don't believe there are any plans to support multiple servers of one 
type, since that seems like an edge-case, and one that would in general 
confuse users more than it would help them.  (Of all the autoconfigs we 
have, no-one has asked for multiple servers of the same type yet.)

As a side note, automx looks like a pretty sweet tool!
