if I remember, there has been at least three different patches for this,
so you are the fourth :-) You're right that it helps a lot with initial
import. To promote my work a little bit, I use bidirectional
synchronization between maildir flags and notmuch tags, which I sent in
id:1268926780-20045-4-git-send-email-sojkam1 at fel.cvut.cz. I use IMAP
clients from time to time and this helps me a lot because the IMAP
server has almost never outdated status.
