Yes, I was thinking about that as a feature for 1.4 (since I now use nmh
on a system which uses Maildir :-)).

I was a bit concerned about the suggestions in that thread that the patch
wasn't really following the Maildir protocol properly, though.

There's also an argument that -notruncate on a Maildir ought to mean "put
messages in new into the MH folder and then move them to the Maildir cur

Also, I think that main() function is pretty unwieldy already, and adding
yet another thing to increment from makes it even worse. Some refactoring
there would be nice at some point...
