Subject: mod_imap blocks non-GET methods

mod_imap.c does not check the method of the request it is called with to
ensure that it is get.  I believe the correct behavior is to decline
handling requests with other methods so that later modules (eg mod_action)
can handle the request; this is what most of the other modules that work
on a specific mime-type do.  The symptom that manifest this problems was
the server returning "404 Not Found" in response to an attempt to publish
a .map file via http PUT.

Attached is a tiny patch to add the proper check.

Thanks for the great server.
