I don't recall it.

However, I'm concerned that this isn't correct.  According to and, every file in cur/ is
expected to have an info string.  So I don't think that this is correct.

However, perhaps the test a few lines earlier "if 'S' in flags" is
incorrect.  Perhaps it should say "if len(flags) > 0".  Then, we could
store messages with no flags in new, and messages with flags in cur.

Would you be willing to test this against both bincimap and mutt?

It turns out that many Maildir-using programs are working in
incompatible ways for how they show new messages.  Some look in new/,
others look for absence of the S flag.  If this helps you, and also
helps mutt, I could make this change.

Thanks also for using darcs to send your patch.
