Think twice about this. If there isn't a current folder, it returns
+inbox like every other MH application as documented in mh-profile

Since any other behavior would be non-expected, the option really
should be -lie.

Perhaps the application you refer to needs the fix instead.

p.s. I assume that you weren't serious about an uppercase option.
Also, something like -honest isn't very descriptive. Something more
like -err-no-current would be better.
