Migrating from private IMAP to Google Apps Email

Recently I have been moving several clients off of private IMAP servers onto Google Apps, and played with a lot of different migration techniques including POP sucking, email program drag and drop, and the command line. Using the Perl script imapsync, I was able to transfer several years worth of emails to Google Apps in just a few hours and with very little manual intervention. Great solution, read on for code and links.
