I'm not familiar with maildir flags, but I know how IMAP keyword flags
work.  Is the question here how/whether IMAP keyword flags are synced
into corresponding maildir flags?  I think that would be nice, but both
servers and MUA's have a tendency to silently (without user consent) use
keyword flags for their own purposes, so making this optional or
limiting[1] the keyword flags it pays attention to could be a good idea.

Does that answer your question?  If not, I'd appreciate a clarification
(especially on the maildir side of things).



[1] blacklist or whitelist?  or python expression?  Hmm.
