slow down,
1. only simple ascii art see the scratchpad asciiart *.txt samples.
2. only lines, and text is tried to get recognized.
3. there is no trying in recognized rects.
4. in AsciiArtPad the AsciiArtBuilder is responsible to recognize
   lines, and text
5. is was quick hack, just for fun
6. i was first thinking about understanding some groff, or something
like that, but i stopped, and thought, no just simple stuff,
just enter some dash, bar chars, that's it
and not learning some more powerful - but complicate language.

hmmm, as much as i understand IMAP access, i think that
IMAP needs some session info/state.

hmmm, there is already some XML-DB access via Source...
hmmm, but XML-DB has the advantage that content is already XML.
Using javamail and writing an Source wrapper around?
just a feeling that would be too complicated, too much
javamail object to XML conversion.

I must admit that I didn't delve into the Source discussion, yet.
