I haven't had my caffeine yet.  Having said that, would use of the word
'remove' be better?  And yes, I read that several times and still being
unclear whether it means "Remove from the folder all messages currently
in the sequence foo" or "remove from the sequence foo all the selected

So reworking it to use the phrasing "remove from the <object being modified>"
would probably be a Good Thing.
