Eric:

Is there a way to "tag" a single thread that isn't matching a saved search and
have it be followed for any new updates? E.g. someone pings a developer on IRC
and says "you may be interested in following this discussion" -- what's the
best course of action for them to pull that into their MFOLDER and get all the
new updates?

-t includes every message in the thread strictly (same with mairix):

	lei q -t -o $MFOLDER mid:$MSGID

For a fuzzy subject match (like /t/ and /T/ in WWW), add ` OR s:"..." '

	lei q -t -o $MFOLDER mid:$MSGID OR s:"subject phrase"

And the usual: lei up $MFOLDER

Ah, sorry, I wasn't clear -- this would be into an existing $MFOLDER with a
regular q already defined. E.g. I have ~/Maildir/foofunc with:

    q = dfhh:foofunc

However, I am now suddenly interested in a thread with msgid foo@bar. I can
modify the q= parameter to be "dfhh:foofunc OR mid:foo@bar", or I can define a
new $MFOLDER just for mid:foo@bar, but it doesn't look like I can just one-off
cherry-pick a thread into an existing ~/Maildir/foofunc, right?

Is there a way to feed multiple saved searches into the same local maildir?
(Not saying there should be a way, just trying to get a clear picture in my
head.)

Thanks,

You can modify existing searches with:

	lei edit-search $MFOLDER

And possibly reset the external.$FOO.maxuid for local externals
to so old messages aren't excluded (dedupe should still work).

Not sure, maybe --augment works, but I haven't thought about how
it interacts with saved searches at all

Of course Xapian OR lets you combine as many queries as you want
(but things like -t and the external list used is global across
 all subqueries).
