Folder name completion was what I wanted for. I guess that it's not to be.

I would like to request a new nmh feature:

  A pair of consecutive arguments: "+" "string", is regarded as a single
  argument: "+ string".

It would allow shell wild cards, would simplify many scripts and would allow
shell file name completion to be used in nmh commands.

Note: This feature would break what is now either an nmh bug or an undocumented
nmh feature: An unadorned plus sign designates the user's nmh mail directory. If
that capability is deemed important, then '++', or somesuch, could designate the
user's nmh mail directory.
