Well, basically due to my comments in 
id:"" (and so far little
interest to this patch series) I have 'drafts' and 'spam' directories

If there is renewed interests with real use cases I'm interested to make
this work more complete (now that there is change to get patches in ;) 
-- and then move my drafts and spam under database.path too.

I'll mark the current patches as 'notmuch::wip' for the time being.
