I am not proposing that we replace the current MH mailstore with Maildir,
if that's what you mean.  You should still be able to use the traditional
MH mailstore (and we'll keep that the default) for the forseeable future.

I am saying that we have people who want to use the nmh tools with both
IMAP and Maildir mailstores.  So making the nmh tools work with those
mailstores would be useful.
