How do you feel about automatically rescoring the Unsures after any training
event?  Most people probably don't have that many Unsures stored up and it
would be helpful.  Again, I'm just one user and I don't know how others use
the program.

I understand your dilemma with the large inboxes.  It's certainly your call,
but I hope you recognize that many (most?) users don't have 10K messages
waiting for reply.  That's a burden I can hardly imagine, so I do really
appreciate your developing this open source code.  Personally, I don't get
10K messages that need reply in a year, but maybe I'm not typical and I
don't develop software, so different world.  Since hardware is expected to
be bug-free in the first proto board (and yes, there is a tooth fairy), not
too many people find bugs.  But when one does get out of the lab, they are
sometimes, uh, irritated.  When this occurs, I do get a message or two that
day, or perhaps an avalanche.  They are remarkably similar, usually starting
with the adverbial phrase, "When?", with the remainder being filler.
