"maildir:/path/to/dir" has been supported by public-inbox-watch
for years, now.

The following all work today:

	lei q -o mboxrd:/tmp/foo.mboxrd ...
	lei q -o mboxcl2:/tmp/foo.mboxcl2 ...
	lei q -o maildir:/tmp/foo/ ...

So -f/--format seems redundant.  I'm working on on
"lei import" for multiple sources, so being able to specify the
type/URL-scheme on a per-source basis seems like the way to go:

	lei import mboxrd:/tmp/foo.mboxrd maildir:/tmp/md/ ...
	lei import imaps://$host/INBOX.foo nntps://$host/news.group ...

And there's also "lei convert" in the wings (mainly for
testing/development purposes, but could be useful stand-alone):

	lei convert mboxrd:/tmp/foo.mboxrd maildir:/tmp/md/
