Hey, that sounds cool! It would be nice to be cleverer about moves
between folders. On the downside, offlineimap would have to run and
listen while you move files. (and usually other MUAs would move from
folderA/cur to folderB/tmp to folderB/cur, or would they move directly?)

Would love to have that properly integrated!
