Oh, I forgot to note it will probably import more than just keywords (but maybe it can be tweaked(*)). The thing I want to protect against is somebody forgetting --augment when using "lei q -o imaps://example.com/INBOX ..." which would delete mail that hasn't been imported to lei or backed-up by another tool. Causing data loss in the above scenario would be a nightmare, even if it's technically user error. There's also cases where someone will want to edit a patch in the search results mailbox before applying it (e.g. adding Acked-by, fixing whitespace, trivial errors, etc...) and it might be good to preserve a copy of the edited message. (*) possible directions: --import-$FOO=kw-only --import-$FOO=not-in-git --import-$FOO # same as "not-in-git", this should be the default --import-$FOO=none / --no-import-$FOO
