Yep - I though that should save quite a lot of shoveling around of
data in the common case.

I think I'll actually refine the patch a little. It turns out that
using readdir and unlink on a directory at the same time (over NFS)
sometimes means that you end up skipping files. The right thing to
do is probably build a list of the files in advance  and then operate
on that.

The other think I was thinking about was should inc only act on the
new files in the Maildir, or should it also work on mail in the cur
files in the Maildir.
