Yep, you'll need to delete a folder on both sides for now to really get
rid of it. First, I want OLI rock-stable again.

We could start out by offering folder deletion with an experimental
--delete-folders option, that needs to be explicitly enabled. Once
things work, we could enable it by default.

It is just too darn easy to have a corrupted cache file, or
misconfiguring (point your Maildir to an empty dir) delete your whole
mail corpus on your IMAP, that I want to be really careful here.
