No, if mails have been deleted (or moved to a different folder), there
will be gaps between the UID numbers, that is just fine.

A message is being deleted on side 'B', if it has been REMOVED (eg by
EXPUNGE'ing it from the IMAP server) from side 'A' AND the LocalStatus
file has an entry for the message UID (ie we know it has been there

The 'T(rashed)' flag will be propagated to the other side, but it will
not lead to a deletion of the message.

So in case that an entry is accidentally being dropped from LocalStatus, we will
just recreate the LocalStatus entry (as the message is still existent on
both sides).
