I didn't understand the changes you made with the 'next' branch, can you
explain them a little bit?

I also use mbnames with my mutt setup here.
I have this in my .offlineimaprc:

enabled = yes
filename = ~/.mutt/mailboxes
header = "mailboxes "
peritem = "+%(accountname)s/%(foldername)s"
sep = " "
footer = "\n"

And an aditional offlineimap-helpers.py i call with the "pythonfile"
option containing this:

import re
def oimaptransfolder_Geekosphere(foldername):
    if(foldername == "INBOX"):
        retval = "Geekosphere"
        retval = "Geekosphere." + foldername
    retval = re.sub("/", ".", retval)
    return retval

And with this i already got rid of the "INBOX". I have several accounts
and i get the following maildir structure in the mutt sidebar:


With the following directory structure:


Does the 'next' branch change anything on this?
If i'm totally wrong then i'm sorry :)
