[Svn] quota <> delete problem

some people noticed a "bug" when a user account's quota is full, they
are not able to delete any messages anymore.

Reason is that iil_C_Move only marks a message as deleted when it has
been moved to the Trash folder. At least that is how we tracked it
down. I'd like some input from you guys on this. I opened a ticket and
attached two patches to introduce a configuration option and so on.


Not really a RoundCube issue, but we could offer a way to solve it. On
many installations Trash doesn't count "towards" the quota, hence
people don't have this problem. But some IMAP servers are
obviously/unfortunately not capable of that.

This is also different from "delete_right_away". "delete_right_away"
says that we delete email without copying it to Trash, but I
personally find this a bad idea. This is not how IMAP is supposed to
work. My patch would add something for a "just in case" scenario. BTW,
I also couldn't figure out how "delete_right_away" is supposed to
work. It's only mentioned in the config file, but maybe I oversaw it (
- an fgrep -r "delete_right_away" * didn't bring anything up).

What do you guys think? If you don't want this in the official
RoundCube source, no issues with me. I think it's a problem that the
server needs to solve, but ... ;-)
