   That worked fine.

OK, committed.

   I see, with VISIBLE-DEFAULT you can see what will happen if
   you just hit Enter, but the default is not "pre-typed" for you.
   The advantage, as you say, is that you don't have to delete it
   in order to specify a different flag.

   I have actually found it troublesome that 'l' uses
   INSERTED-DEFAULT, because after listing things with one flag,
   if you want to do a different 'l' you have to delete that
   inserted default the next time.  So I think that I would find
   VISIBLE-DEFAULT to be preferable.  I wonder what the rest of
   the user community thinks.

My rationale for using INSERTED-DEFAULT for the summarization command
is that it eases editing of the default, without retyping every flag,
and that it occupies less horizontal space in the minibuffer, which is
a scarce resource, since Edwin doesn't do the sensible thing and
expand the minibuffer vertically when necessary.  But then I seldom
change the flags by which I wish to summarize.

       Also, I'd like to add commands `imail-next-unflagged-message' and
       `imail-previous-unflagged-message', so that I can navigate non-filed
       messages in my inbox easily.  Any suggestions for keys to bind to such

   I have no opinion at this time.
   I'm not familiar enough with the range of imail commands yet
   to come up with sensible, consistent suggestions.
   (I only started using it in mid-April and was away for several
   weeks in July.)

I'll keep thinking about it.  Please let me know whether there's any
other functionality you miss in IMAIL, by the way.
