FWIW, it's good to speak on this level, instead of "must import my profile".
Importing account config should be relatively easy. Reading local
folders (mbox) should also be possible, and there's a clear need for
that, if you're not using IMAP.
But there's a lot of other stuff in the profile, your filters, your spam
filter data, and what not, and that's a lot harder to migrate. In fact,
an MVP product won't even have filters. (And I say that as somebody who
totally depends on filters.)
