If I may, I would suggest something different: an option to query the user how they want the rmail-summary-by-* command to be applied: on the entire folder, to limit the existing summary, to extend the existing summary.

The first of these three options is not useful -- to get that result, just type q before the command. So there would be only two that are needed: union and intersection.

A third option would be more natural, I think. After all, the first option is AFAIU the current effect of the rmail-summary-by-* command, they are applied on the entire folder and create a new summary.

C-u would be a natural way to specify this.

C-u is already used by the rmail-summary-by-topic and rmail-summary-by-recipients commands for another purpose.
