Well, instead of specifying a folder name, you could pipe the message
into rcvstore using "|" in your maildelivery file, that would let you specify
the command completely and add a -seq argument to rcvstore.

I can save you the trouble; that's not going to change anything.  All
set_unseen does is modify the sequence status bit vector in the folder
structure.  The locks don't get released until seq_save() is called.
