Sam, I made one further small change to the Wikipedia paragraph on
maildirs, which now states:

"When a maildir reading process (either a POP or IMAP server, or a mail
user agent acting locally) finds messages in the new directory it
_must_ move them to cur ... etc."

I did a bit of research on the term "mail retrieval agent" and it
doesn't look as if this is an apt description of a POP or IMAP daemon,
so I changed the wording to be more specific.

Is this technically correct, and is "must" appropriate?

I agree, this is technically correct.
