But I'd be quite happy to help, such as I can, in advancing the cause of
good database backend and vfolders support.
What do you folks think of dbmail (.org)? I'm curious about the
possibility of modifying its folder implementation to resemble labels
(like GMail) while keeping the tree-like structure (unlike GMail).
Then, you only need to write a back-end driver for Mutt to talk to the
database. (Until then, you could just use the IMAP server.)
