Hi Sebastian,

I have my Maildir under Git, and so I put 'git' in my folderfilter so that
offlineimap doesn't sync it.  However, your new remote folder creation code
just created a "git" label in my Gmail account, even though it's not going to
sync that folder.

I should think it would only create remote folders for folders that will be
sync'd.  I happen to keep several "local-only" mailboxes, for archival
