I've thought about this myself, and hopefully I'll get a chance to
include it as I'm making my auto-balancing updates.  I also would like
to add a menu item to rescore the currently selected folder.  Would
anyone else find this useful?  I often rescore my Spam folder to see if
additional training has caused any of the messages to fall back below
the threshold (yes, this does happen fairly often, especially when your
training set is still small).  Going through the "Filter now" dialog box
and updating my folder selections every time gets cumbersome.

Locally, I've renamed mine simply "Spam" and "Not Spam".  This also has
the nice side-effect of making the toolbar shorter.
