Would it be possible or acceptable to include reading passwords from command 
output so that external password stores like pass[1], Gnome Keyring, or custom 
stores password could be used?

pass is becoming increasingly popular. There's now even extension for Firefox[2] 
which queries pass locally. It's not about "security" but rather convenience of 
having the passwords stored in single place. Password commands are also 
supported by OfflineIMAP and isync (mbsync).

Claws-mail could just execute the password command once when opening the IMAP 
connection for the first time and then cache it. Is something like this 

Thank you.
