When you say it makes refile `do the right thing', do you mean refile
doesn't create copies of the emails if the future rmmproc can't be
invoked?  I'm guessing not from the patch's brevity.  :-)  That means
the user is left with many duplicate emails, most likely with different
numbers, hard-linked across two folders to clean up.

Cheers, Ralph.
