Even if they don't mark the message as seen, any flag changed would move the 
message to cur/. The only buggy behavior would be from mutt, with the bug you 
mentioned about mutt putting messages with flags back to new/.

They should be addressed by the follow-up patch. Just a comment below.

And bool is already used at another place in message.cc:

        struct maildir_flag_tag {
            char flag;
            const char *tag;
            bool inverse;
        };

IIUC it should be changed to notmuch_bool_t too.

Ok.
