But if the folder isn't open yet, all you need to worry about is the
unread count. You don't actually need to update the summary until the
user goes to look at the folder. So for things like the Sent folder, or
Hmm, I guess.
filtering messages into a folder you only look at rarely, or moving old
messages into an "archive" folder, this would save time.

Yeah, you'd use imap copy anyway, you just wouldn't look into the
destination folder first like we do now.
Except this api wouldn't allow this, since its message -> folders, not folder + uids -> folder(s).  It would need Jeff's idea of folder open state, and just use the existing api.

Hm. Where would the sendmail and smtp code be in that case?
Same basically, they'd just be 'mostly unimplemented' stores.  Ideally it would be an interface on the object, but at the end of the day it wouldn't make much difference if it was just a virtual method and a bit to say it doesn't work.  On the other hand this is post 2 stuff, and i had most of an interface system done anyway at one point, so that could be possible too, it could clean up some other stuff too.
Merging store and transport would definitely make the Exchange transport
nicer though. (Currently it pretends to do POP-before-SMTP auth so that
evo-mail will give it a copy of the exchange store URL which it then
uses to get a copy of the CamelExchangeStore object.)
Wow.  Well that was the primary goal of the idea; and it seems a natural abstraction for stores anyway.
