It was actually the question of "should I just process messages in
new, or should I process both new and cur". Initially I thought
that maybe inc should just work on new, as we usually use inc on
recently delivered mail. However, now I'm fairly certain that it
should process mail in new and cur, as I have users that usually
use pop with the "keep mail on server" option and they then
periodically inc that mail (which the pop server moves to cur).

Do you think it is worth the extra rename operations to do the
pedantically correct processing? It would also raise the question
of what to do in the non-truncate case.
