The manual uses nnfolder as an example of how a user may keep an archive
of mailboxes all in a subdirectory for mail they may keep.  I couldn't
see anything wrong with the idea.  In fact, the syntax for how I've done
this is mostly taken from the manual.

This is not for saving *every* message.  This is only for saving
particular messages I come across that I want to save.  Because it is
only me deciding which messages those should be, it has to be manual.
Do you know why it's double-prompting me this way, or how to stop it?

He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from
oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent
that will reach to himself.
