Oh, man.  That's a serious bummer.

Is there any mechanism left that would let me hierarchically group
messages?  I've got a ton of mail.* folders, and create new ones
dynamically.  I really want a mechanism to group them hierarchically, so
I can have a search that matches all current and future mail
directories.  I organized my whole mail setup around folders because a)
tags do not provide this kind of hierarchical control, and b) there
doesn't seem to be a convenient way to apply tags 100% reliably on
message delivery, whereas I *can* control the folder 100% reliably.

Worse, because of my poor performance, I was hoping to segregate
messages by year.  So it would be:


All the way back.  Now you are saying there will be no convenient way to
match just the "mail.class" part without the year?  How very
distressing.  Ugh.
