I didn't play much with gmail. What I understood is :

- From Gmail -> Extern
Label -> Folder
- From Extern -> Google
Folder -> Label
So as a backup point of view we need to restore several
times a message in different gmail folders to see all labels
restored. This is stupid but I didn't write gmail.
So even you save time for backuping, you can't save time
when restoring. I won't try to code such a useless scenario.
We need an imap way, or any protocol way, to backup and
restore labels. Ask google.
Google Labels are imap folders.

I know, I'm subscribed.
