Yep, as long as it is optional and experimental, I think that is fine.

They are if I remember correct, but I'll make sure they are in.

P.S. The sqlite-based status cache is about half the size of the
plain-text one. My maildir is not sufficiently large to really suffer a
lot from the extreme performance loss that others had been seeing, so I
would appreciate if some testing. Going back to plaintext should be
quite easy and painless.

P.P.S. Sometimes I would love to have a --dry-run feature that would
tell me what it would sync on a run. I am not sure how easy it would be
to implement, but is that something others could be interested in as well?
