Right, associate a name for the search from the *search* view instead of
the folder view. Then it's just a matter of using that command and
typing a name. At that point, you get the new folder (or named search)
added to the main window. That's a great plan.

So you wouldn't generally end up using tags? And each time you wanted to
view a folder you'd really get a new search result? I can see some
benefits if you're using time-range based searches (show me all the mail
From Carl that was received in the last week). And disadvantages as
searching might actually be slow at some point?

Yea, sorry 'bout that.

Let's figure it out later; it's just a number and we can change it
without any penalty.
