Hi Thomas,

it seems that the shiny folder creation has broken enough to warrant a
stabilizing/fixing period before I even start to think about new features.

Handling reported broken folder filtering, and the dreaded "DUplicate
mailbox" folder creation, as well as getting the revamped logging
infrastructure into master is more than enough for me to cope with.

It seems that IMAP<->IMAP is currently somewhat broken too, so I'll say no
to any feature request for now...

Yeah, I noticed that too. One more thing that needs fixing.
