Well, I've been meaning to learn about the registry, but I wasn't keen
on having such pressure to start. 

I'm a crappy li'l hacker.  No one really wants me to do anything
important.  Trust me on this.

I might have to look at that spam.el again.  I wish I knew better
which bits of ifile-gnus work with imap and which don't.  If
ifile-gnus updates .idata whenever I move mail around, then maybe I
can use procmail for the recommendations.  It's not quite as nice as
the current setup --- in order to have my rules take precedence over
ifile's recommendations, I'd have to split on every IMAP mailbox.  But
I think it would work.
