I intend to cut 1.5.14 this weekend. I'd like to make 1.5.15 the last
proper dev release for 1.6 - that is, feature-freeze after
1.5.15. So, I'd like to hear once again which patches everyone would
like to see in 1.6 (and which patches people object to).
The maildir_indicator patch by Olaf Hering overcomes an annoying
shortcoming when reading Maildir folders. I'm using it for quite
some time now, and didn't have any problems with it.
I attach a version against current tip.
It uses unsigned short for counting new mails which isn't too unlikely
to overflow I think. The short fields come from BUFFY in buffy.h and the
comments there imply these are used as flags, not as counters.
