"g" from the *Group* buffer should Just Work now.  All messages in new/,
and all messages not marked as Seen in cur/, will count towards the group's
Unread count.  If this isn't working yet, it's likely that there is
something else strange going on with your config.

As per the Maildir standard, MTAs/MDAs which are compatible with the
Maildir format deliver to new/, and when flags (for example "Seen") are
appended, the mail is moved from new/ to cur/ with the filename altered
appropriately, e.g. ~/Mail/Inbox/new/[some-maildir-id] becomes
~/Mail/Inbox/cur/[some-maildir-id];S when marked Seen by Gnus.
