This is really nice - just what I needed. Well, almost.

Instead of passing in destdir it would be even better if the lisp code
figured out which MailDir to use. So we'd have a configuration variable
that matched From addresses to MailDirs
"dirk at hohndel.org" "~/MailDirHohndel"
"dirk.hohndel at intel.com" "~/MailDirIntel"
And just for safety used the passed in destdir as fallback / default.

Anyone willing / able to add this? I can't lisp to save my life...
