Confilcts with imap for no reason

Description of problem:
This package conflicts with imap for no reason I can see. It is just
a library and imap is a server. Conflicting with imap-devel is
probably reasonable, but certainly not imap.
I'd like to be able to upgrade to the lastest fedora core without
uninstalling my imap server. Upgrading to cyrus is a big step that
allows no backwards compatibility. Not even maildir.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try dovecot instead of cyrus. It works with very little tweaking. I
can't imagine why anyone would want to use the horribly unstable and
(Note this is just my personal opinion.)
Thanks Warren. I didn't think cyrus could be the only IMAP server in
fedora. I think dovecot should obsolete imap (it does as far as I can
see) then. This is, I think, what was intended by removing imap and
adding dovecot in the first place.
Some people want to use some kind of web based interface that links
with libc-client. IMHO, we shouldn't even be shipping libc or imap
anymore as NOTHING we ship ship even uses it. That way people that
want to use this horribly broken software can do so if they really wish.
