This sounds like what Thunderbird 2 does with Gmail mail account 
creation. Once created, the account is just another POP3 account, but 
during creating, you're asked if you want to create an IMAP, POP, or 
Gmail account. If you choose Gmail, it only asks you for the username 
and password - everything else is defaulted correctly.
