OK, that brings us back to the original discussion. :) Is "+" without
anything immediately following a folderspec in its own right? Norman
says no, and I think I agree with him, chiefly because the folder root
could still be referenced with "+." (once I fix the bugs).

P.S. Norman, I replied to your two-month old message about using "file -i"
just recently, but your mailserver rejects any email coming from mine. If
this list doesn't send duplicates to you then you might not have seen my
reply at all.
