From: David Bremner

Today someone asked me the (reasonable) question of how much
performance impact there is from synching tags to maildir flags. It
turns out it is noticeable, about a 50% overhead compared to
non-synched tags (according to these tests).  In practice I don't know
if it's a big problem for users, since I don't know what fraction of
tagging operations involve "special" tags.
