I still do some (ongoing) testing to use mutt with my icloud account,
i.e. with googlemailapis.com, but after discarding oauth2 use for accessing
the scope mail.google.com, I decided to make a break before
continuing my testing with my cloud account.
I will keep you and the list informed.

Just to follow up: I have been trying to use glcoud (SDK) to get access to
my cloud account (for doing a mutt-related project), 
but connecting via console I always get an oauth2 url
link telling me "Go to the following link in your browser",and below, the
line: "Enter the verification code". I'm connecting via
gcloud auth login ACCOUNT as I do not have any credentialed accounts
yet. No browser is launched automatically. I have set the env var to my
browser's path, but maybe it's not possible to have a GUI browser
launched by a console app, I'm not sure. I reported it to the Google Bug
Tracker (1) but still haven't got any reply.
I read the related onsite docs, and the short answer is: they talk about
having to enter the 200 characters oauth2 url manually (if no browser is
launched.) But I am reluctant to do that, there should be a technical
solution that does NOT force me to do that.
Secondly, I set up a state-of-the-art virtual python3 environment using
venv, intending to make gcloud only use its own gcloud packaged libs (to
ensure that there is no interference, ENABLE_SITEPACKAGES=0, but doing a
gcloud info I can see that the gcloud app does not honour in any way
that virtual python3 environment I made and declared as an environment
variable using CLOUDSDK_PYTHON=/Path/to/virtual_py/python3 as indicated.
It's more, support for python3 is said to be experimental, so it might
be VERY experimental. As I didn't even learn python2 as it is
outdated, I started right away with python3 after having glimpsed into
swaroop's python2 course. So I think if it's not possible to have a plain
python3 (venv) virtual installation WITH gcloud, I'd prefer to stay outside.

INFO: I conect via gcloud after having created an account and an example
project via web console. As there are no credentialed accounts yet, I am
reminded by gcloud's help text to connect using gcloud auth login
ACCOUNT. And here we are...

Well, I will keep you and the list informed.
