I hate to be negative but my main objection to these commands is that
they are hardcoded to the unseen sequence instead of being more general.

All of them amount to some sort of handling for the unseen sequence
across several folders.

For this, I just have an alias to flist that specifies the list of
folders that can receive incoming mail. The output format might not be
ideal but it could be made customisable.

Which is just a multi-folder scan. It might be better to adapt scan so
that you can specify multiple folders with a sequence.
