Probably -- but the hard part will be to come up with a polished UI to
set per-folder options.

Actually this is already possible by using outgoing filters, isn't it?

Options like this sure must override the accounts default only, if set
at all.

This settings are available by the menu currently. Which is somewhat
confusing, cause they really are per-folder options.

So if we ever get per-folder settings implemented with a proper UI,
those should get in there.

Actually... Yup, I want to. :)

However, my only use case for filtering on all (nope, just a few ones)
folders would be assigning labels. Cause labels are stored locally
rather than on the IMAP server, I cannot assign them by server

Anyway, just a quick thought, though. I am totally aware that this will
cost a lot of resources (bandwidth and CPU) -- and the best solution
would be to store labels on the IMAP server, if supported.


char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
