I think that's too much vertical whitespace at the top of the
page, and multiple <form>s or <input> boxes at the top can get

Just making /all/ show up at the top like a normal inbox (and
letting the admin decide on description) seems sufficient.  If
users can get to /all/ then they can search /all/ as normal.

I tried moving the <input>s next to infourl, but mixing <form>
and <pre> introduces a lot of vertical whitespace.

I also tried adding radio button (or drop-down):

	[_________________] [*] inboxes [ ] /all/   [search]

But extra <form> elements always confuse me whenever I encounter
them in any browser, so I decided to just leave things alone.
