Thanks, I do use queries for some things.

I anyhow have a tagging script to do the initial tagging
(also does some relatively naive spam removal, archiving of older
messages, kill lists etc).

Complicated queries just split the config in two then, some logic would
be in the tagging script and other things in the config, which I find
personally a step back rather than an improvement.
Especially as I will have to archive the inboxes at one point or another,
making the folder query fail (or me having to specify the archive dir in
the folder query as well).

Out of interest, how does your workflow look like?
All based on folder queries?
