Fwiw, I didn't really like the term "mfolder" but that's what
mairix users are used to...  Perhaps:

	=item -o MFOLDER, --output=MFOLDER

Or is "mfolder" not that bad and we ditch --output instead?

(mairix uses '-o', so we match it there)

I never really got used to using "folder" to describe mailboxes
or directories.  I associate "folder" with something that holds
only a few pages of paper in the physical world; not thousands
or millions of items.
