  Recurse through the folders (in csh and sh):

  % foreach f (`folders -f`)		$ for f in `folders -f`
  ? pick [switches] +$f			> pick [switches] +$f
  ? end					> done

  Or create a folder that contains links to all messages (in csh and sh):

    % foreach f (`folders -f | grep -v -x ln`)
    ? refile -src +$f -link all +ln
    ? end

    $ for f in `folders -f | grep -v -x ln`
    > do refile -src +$f -link all +ln
    > done

  and in the future, refile messages with "refile +folder +ln". To
  find something, use:

    % pick [switches] +ln
