It occurs to me that it might be better/easier to use the refile hook.  Okay,
you're probably wondering what that is.  Check out docs/README-HOOKS, which
is probably installed as share/doc/README-HOOKS.  I can't guarantee that
it's all working correctly; it's not a feature that is exercised by the
test suite and I don't know if people use it a lot.  But the code is still
there and we haven't gone out of our way to break it.  I know, that doesn't
sound encouraging, does it?  I just wanted to be up-front in case it turns
out there's bugs in it and we didn't know about it.

It does seem that it's not exactly easy to find out what sequences a message
is on.  You'd think mark -list would do it, but not exactly.  That might
require some changes to the "mark" command.
