I have to admit that I don't really get your problem. The 1 account case
is crystal clear. In the multi-account case, you have a per-account

What is the problems? Different accounts work on different IMAP servers,
so having different imapfilter instances running simultanously shouldn't
be a problem, right?
As for mailcheck, I have no idea what that solves, but as you cannot
sync into the same Maildir repository from separate accounts, I don't
see how running those in parallel would hurt in any case.

You might need to give some more details on your setup.

If you want to make sure one presynchook has run before everything else
runs, you can also disable multithreading and have the presynchook in
the first account (at the expense of some performance).
